Nonprofits Assistance Fund believes that knowing the real, true costs of delivering nonprofit programs is critical to move an organization towards sustainable finances. When you know what it costs to deliver your programs you are better able to make decisions about fundraising, contract terms or pricing, and how to make the best use of unrestricted revenue. Great decisions require great information.
