Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to identify the kinds of decisions where nonprofit organizations need to manage their risks in a strategic fashion, to review what we know about how they approach these decisions, and to offer a conceptual framework that nonprofits can use to develop a more sophisticated and effective approach to their risk management decisions in the future. For various reasons, nonprofits have not taken a sufficiently robust view of risk management, A simple framework is presented to address the risk-related decisions of nonprofits in a strategic fashion, with a view to inspire fuller attention to risk management in the nonprofit academic literature and in professional forums.
