Jessica LaBarbera

Director of Strategic Innovation for Nonprofit Finance Fund

LaBarbera spoke to the Children and Families Commission of Orange County about the changes in philanthropy and the emergence of outcomes-base funding.

Non-profit organizations nationwide have identified achieving long-term financial sustainability as their top challenge. To meet that challenge would require, in part, an increase in funding. But in this post-recession era, philanthropists and funding organizations are requiring non-profits to connect their activities to outcomes.

LaBarbera addressed ways in which building a strong financial management culture, investing in human resources to collect and assess impact, collaborating with others and creating capitalization plans can help non-profits adapt to the changing philanthropic culture.
