Working in the nonprofit sector is stressful – and even more so these days.
Providing programs is stressful – both creating and implementing the right programs, and matching the need for services to the money available to fill that need.
Managing finances is stressful – allocating funding across budget lines is never easy, and in times of scarcity it can become even more difficult.
Overseeing people is stressful – particularly when we don’t have the money to reward fine service appropriately.
Fundraising is certainly stressful – especially when the future of innovative programming rests on you.
And finally, looking ahead to maintain that strategic vision, is stressful nowadays – when the environment is throwing zingers our way at any random moment.
Finding the love.
