The next gathering of the Marin Business Forum, scheduled for March 21, will focus on the challenges that both non-profit and for-profit businesses in generating revenue. Any organization needs money to operate, but many professionals don’t have a clear understanding of the differences and similarities that drive revenue for both for-profit and non-profit operations. There are a number of restrictions and hidden challenges that non-profit organizations face when it comes to generating revenue. Chuck Greene, Executive Director of the Cedars of Marin, and Joan Capurro, Senior Vice President and Director of Community Relations for the Bank of Marin, will discuss the hidden challenges facing non-profits and how for-profit and non-profit can collaborate to help one another.
