The Secret to Motivating Your Nonprofit Employees WITHOUT Money

Let’s say that your nonprofit doesn’t have a big enough budget to pay your hard-working staff as much as you’d like (nor as much as they deserve). We know, we know–it takes a real stretch of the imagination to imagine a nonprofit being in such a position.

There are several other factors that make a huge difference, such as a sense of autonomy, purpose and importance.
