Gaberman's Guidelines for Non-Profit Leaders

Barry Gaberman, senior vice president emeritus of the Ford Foundation, kicked off the UW Center for Nonprofits' "Communiversity" with a lecture on November 3. Delivering a mainstream presentation on civil society, he offered five guidelines for nonprofit leaders for achieving in these times:
  1. Don't Panic. Be attentive to staff anxiety.
  2. Do Continengency Planning. Go through the paces.
  3. Think Strategically. Not only about what you do, but also about how you do it.
  4. Engage in High Touch. Connect with key stakeholders clearly and consistently.
  5. Be Vigilent About Mission. Reinforce it for funders seeking a 'true to the core' mentality.
