Nonprofit CEOs Advocate for Strategic Communications

Far too many nonprofits view communications as a secondary function to the main work of the organization. In the eyes of the CEOs who lead these organizations, communications involve little more than issuing press releases, answering media queries, and putting together an annual report. Some foundations even go out of their way to not communicate, preferring to operate in stealth mode. Other nonprofits, however, view communications as a strategic function integral to the organization’s overall work. These organizations, I believe, will ultimately be more successful.
