Case Study Selection
Organizations were selected for diversity of location across
the country, size, sector and approach to the work they do. While
the case studies cannot represent the broad diversity within the
sector, nor locate the best of the "effective practices",
they do illustrate a wide range of successful practices. The organizations
presented in the inventory have developed a unique set of practices
that create resourcing models to fit with their mission and help
them strengthen their long term financial sustainability.
No matter what the mandate, location, size, or scope of the organizations,
they do share some basic principles: they all represent effective,
vibrant organizations that have adapted to change, are passionately
committed to their mission or purpose, and strongly represent
their communities. Please see the list
of organizations included in the inventory.
