Navigating Economic Change

Lawyers Alliance helps nonprofits cope with the legal impact of economic and regulatory changes and to preserve and grow programs to meet the strong demand for their services. In 2017, Lawyers Alliance continues to represent organizations striving for long-term sustainability in an ever-changing economic climate.

In December 2012, Lawyers Alliance released Charting the Course: Legal Help for Nonprofits in Troubled Times, a report that provides proven business and legal strategies to help nonprofit leaders and board members meet the continuing challenges posed in a weak economy. Despite an unpredictable financial outlook, there are multiple best practices that nonprofits can pursue to better position themselves to carry forth their charitable missions. The report focuses on five key areas: mission, people, facilities, funds, and relationships.
