GPSA Working Paper #2 | Lester M. Salamon, Stephanie L. Geller, and S. Wojciech Sokolowski.
Despite the recent emphasis on sustainability planning, nonprofit organizations engaged in social accountability remain fundamentally tied to fairly traditional grant funding from international sources. This working paper reviews financial sustainability options for civil society organizations engaged in citizen engagement with policymakers and service providers in monitoring and assessing government performance. It suggests five concrete strategies that social accountability organizations can consider, drawing on literature, interviews, organizational website and an analysis of recent trends in nonprofit finance. This paper was commissioned by the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA), a global partnership program within The World Bank Group.
