Many social sector leaders of large-budget and complex organizations have the task of trying to financially sustain programming and services into the future. In the face of reduced government funding, strained resource development opportunities, and a lack of social enterprises, organizations are struggling with decreasing revenue and significant net losses.

The 2017 Large-Budge/Complex Organizations Meeting will examine these issues and sustainability formulas for the sector moving forward. Leaders will share case studies related to their organizations’ respective sustainability efforts and there will be an open and engaging dialogue about how leaders have attracted and efficiently used financial resources and the right formulas to achieve long-term sustainability. 

In addition, the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities’ national partner, Oliver Wyman, a global leader in management consulting will join the dialogue to share some of their initial findings for the initiative A National Imperative: Joining Forces to Strengthen Human Services in America. The initiative is using data-driven analysis and original research to assess the health of the sector and of community-based human services organizations in America, identify the internal and external forces creating challenges across the sector, and drive to cross-sector solutions and recommendations that will ensure the sector’s strength and vitality into the future.

Finding a new way forward will require the participation of stakeholders across the sector to address several key challenges including the rapid pace of change in science and technology, health care reform, regulatory concerns, shifts in philanthropic giving, population and demographic trends, growing income inequality, greater emphasis on outcomes and impact, maintaining necessary organizational capacities, and lack of funding for the full cost of delivering services.

Specific topics to be covered include: 

  • Social enterprises
  • Access to capital and liquidity for investment
  • Collaborative mergers and acquisitions
    • Valuing service lines
  • Access to private equity buyouts
  • Endowment building 
  • Service diversification 
  • Revenue reliability
  • Full cost of service liability
  • Decreasing and/or eliminating debt

  • Have a budget of at least $20 million
