This study examined the impact of a funding model for non-profit organizations and think tanks in Oklahoma. 15 related parties to a non-profit, including board members, current employees, former employees, and contractors were recruited using convenience sampling and participated in interviews with questions related to funding models, organizational agility, dynamic capabilities, organizational effectiveness and longevity, and any ethical complications that may result from using a specific funding model. Participants most notably reported holding the paradoxical belief that the organization ideally should rely on a few large-dollar donors, even as they expressed concerns that such reliance likely limits the ability of the organization to survive. This could perhaps be ameliorated by strong leadership and lines of communication. Future research should determine the degree to which one’s position within the organization influences their opinion of salient issues, such as which fundraising strategy might contribute to the decline of the organization.
