Abstract

The philosophy of adopting and adapting entrepreneurial business approacjes in the management of not-for-profit (NFP) organisations has steadily grown. Especially in the light of the recent global financial crisis, NFPs need to build internal and external capabilities that are differentiated from competitors. Developing and running a sustainable not-for-profit organisation is only possible if an organisation has strategically planned and built in innovative and entrepreneurial survival mechanisms such as cause related marketing strategies, alternative revenue streams, or through the 'employment' of volunteers to help 'run the business'. This paper explores the use of different revenue streams in NFPs and examines the value that results from working with volunteers.
