Nonprofits need to get it together | Todd Cohen, Inside Philanthropy

Cohen begins:
A lot of nonprofits, boards and funders are in serious denial.
Many are in a deep financial hole, yet precious few can talk straight to their funders about their problems.
Later, he writes:
Nonprofits’ survival depends on their ability and willingness to communicate more honestly and openly with their funders, while educating their boards about their finances and enlisting them in the fundamental job of fundraising.
And he concludes:
If nonprofits, boards and funders do not wake up soon, nonprofits will continue to struggle, leaving as victims the clients who count on them to provide the programs and services they need more than ever in our shattered economy.
