Why is your nonprofit’s mission important to you? No. We don’t mean to your nonprofit. Every nonprofit has a pre-written statement regarding why their cause is their cause. We want to know why it is important to you, personally.
Chances are, some of your nonprofit co-workers haven’t stopped to think about this in a while (or ever).
