(NFP) organisations work at the front lines of social need, providing services
to families and communities under increasing strain from climate emergencies,
economic stress, homelessness and mental health crises. NFPs are also a vital
component of Australia’s social fabric, contributing nearly a tenth of overall
economic activity, more than a tenth of employees, and millions of volunteers.
They fill the gap when government and the private sector are unable or
unwilling to deliver.
Yet there is a widespread belief that they should
do all this without incurring indirect operating costs, which undermines their
success and sustainability. https://scholarships.org.au/media/effective-for-purpose-leadership-is-more-critical-than-ever/
