Venturesome CEO Roundtable 1 – Enterprising Charities – January 2008

This paper summarises a discussion with a group of CAF Venturesome investees who are seeking to make the transition from grants to trading income.

The general theme of the paper is that it is harder, and takes longer than is frequently assuned, for charities and other voluntary organisations to successfully diversify their income base.

The paper also champions the concept of “financial resilience” over the notion of “financial sustainability”.
