Research & Feasibility Studies

In conducting feasibility studies, the Center tests hypotheses regarding the direction a nonprofit should go.

Examples of our past work include:

  • the pros and cons of starting a captive insurance company,
  • providing group insurance for association members,
  • merging two nonprofits,
  • adding new programs and services, and
  • relocating the organization headquarters to another state.

The Center works closely with the nonprofit client to refine the query and then provides analysis and a report to assist the decision-making process. The Center’s objectivity, knowledge of the nonprofit sector and extensive experience with such studies ensures that the nonprofit will receive a thorough and objective report upon which to base its judgments.
