Have you ever watched the TV Programme “Love It or List It”? The concept is one half of a couple want to stay in their house whilst the other wants to sell, but both agree the current house is not suitable for their current needs and hence needs upgrading.
When I think of charities the same concept can apply. You love the charity and what it is doing or you have fallen out of love because you are not achieving what you want to or it is getting increasingly hard to deliver what you want, especially in the current environment. So what do you do, look for something different, this could be ceasing or merging or you look to upgrade or change. Charities are evolving all the time. Introducing new technologies, reacting to client needs, but we don’t always recognise this when we are so involved. Change is not a big thing although it can be frightening. Reflecting on what we have already achieved can help reduce that fear. The make-overs on the TV programme are usually incredible although the budget is often exceeded. You need to be careful when introducing change that your financial due diligence is robust, but the results could be incredible.
If you are in the “love it” camp here are some suggestions to upgrade your charity.
These are only a few questions to ask yourself but form the basis to start a good review. Learn to “love” your charity again and do not “lose” it.
If you would like to discuss any of the items from the downloadable checklist mentioned above, or need support with any other aspect of your charity, please contact us today.
