Resource Center

Much of the material contained on these pages was developed for the Yale School of Management - The Goldman Sachs Foundation Partnership on Nonprofit Ventures and the National Business Plan Competition for Nonprofit Organizations. We are very grateful to the Yale School of Management and its sponsors - The Pew Charitable Trusts and The Goldman Sachs Foundation - for sharing this information with the field.
