The working capital of the NGO is trust.
It is the foundation of partnering in the work-scape and scope of the NGO/CSO. Organizers, clients, partners, funders, providers… All stakeholders rely on trust as the operating liquidity of relations, programming and repeatable successful execution.
It’s a natural resource. It presents in varying quantities, from abundance to scarcity. It can be abused, run out and often does. When consumed, it takes immense energy to restore and effort to find an alternate source.
