Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Financial crisis within the nonprofit sector
by Horton, Connie R., Ph.D., Capella University, 2013, 114; 3599531
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation analyzes the relationship between nonprofit organizations and their ability to remain sustainable during downturns as a result of financial crisis. This research was intended to provide ways for nonprofits to better prepare for a financial crisis in the future. The phenomenological method of a qualitative study was used to collect information through (a) interviews, (b) discussions, (c) observations, and (d) survey submissions. The results of this study indicate that many nonprofit organizations have caused themselves to be at a disadvantage due to a lack of strategic planning. Nonprofit organizations have shown to have large gaps in their preparation of continuity and resiliency plans that will help mitigate risks that are rooted in cases of financial despair.
