Out of the 200,000 or so nonprofits that were created between 1975 and 2008, only 200—that’s 0.1 percent of these nonprofits—have reached 50 million in annual revenues.

When Tracey Palandjian shared this fact in her panel keynote at the Collaborative and Classy Awards, it raised a few questions. Why are so few organizations crossing this milestone? How can social impact organizations adopt business models that support growth and scalability to solve the world’s largest problems? What can our team at Classy do to help address this issue?
