When the needs of communities are not met by governments or private organizations, nonprofits step in to be gap-fillers. Quite often, nonprofits provide a voice and resources to marginalized groups that are overlooked. However, it is difficult to measure the impact that nonprofits have on the communities they serve. But it is without a doubt nonprofits truly have impact because they build authentic relationships with their communities. This is especially true for small nonprofits – small nonprofits are truly grassroots organizations. However, small nonprofits do not receive the fanfare or the resources of their larger counterparts. But The Micro-Nonprofit Network (“MNN”) would like to change that. Beyond Measure is a bi-weekly blog series highlighting the work of small nonprofits. It is the belief of MNN that small nonprofits truly impact the community and their impact is beyond measure!
