The Fund Diversification Calculator
If more than 50% of your income comes from a single source - a grant, a government contract, a wealthy benefactor - you are very vulnerable. If the unthinkable were to happen - somehow it always does - what then?
Don't risk your mission by relying on too few funding sources. Lots of funding sources reduces the risk. If no single funder accounts for more than 10% of your income, you can survive. Even if they don't leave money in their wills!
Tradtional thinkers like to have a balance of many grantors, many individual donors, and many corporate givers. We are happy as long as you have enough funders in any category to protect you from risk. Download your Fund Diversification Calculator here!
