As economists in the private sector shudder every time they mention the “R” word, recession, we can take solace in our own versions of the letter R. 2008 has left the global village and the nonprofit sector in particular, shaken, unsettled and uncertain of the future. For those that determined to stay the course here are a few notions to hang your hat on.Terry Burton from Dig in Research.
