Not-for-profit organizations represent a significant hiring pool for new graduat

Not-for-profit organizations represent a significant hiring pool for new graduates in the United States. Not-for-profit organizations are identified by the absence
of a monetary profit goal. Typically, the not-for-profit organization’s existence is based on a desire to provide a public benefit. Not-for-profit organizations exist
across industries and are present in education, healthcare, development, and environmental agencies. Examples of not-for-profit organizations include Doctors
without Borders, the American Red Cross, Teach for America, and the World Food Program.
Not-for-profit organizations require leaders who can manage them as businesses while understanding the needs of the communities they serve. For this project,
you will conduct a strategic analysis of a not-for-profit organization of your choice; in so doing, you will develop the critical skills necessary for leadership and
management careers within the not-for-profit business sector. To conduct your analysis, you will identify key financial considerations, explore unique public
relations considerations, and consider issues of sustainability within organizations with a not-for-profit designation. This project will increase your versatility as a
leader and improve your appeal as a potential employee within the not-for-profit business sector. The final product represents an authentic demonstration of
competency because it asks you to critically evaluate factors that contribute to the overall success of a not-for-profit organization.
The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure the quality of your
final submission. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. The final product will be submitted in Module Nine. Remember that
you final submission will include a conclusion that summarizes the milestone work in a closing section.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:
 Evaluate management strategies and organizational structures of not-for-profit organizations for their effectiveness in managing boards, volunteers, and
staff
 Analyze communication strategies used by not-for-profit organizations for how they advance shared values, attitudes, and goals with all stakeholders
 Analyze resource and budgetary considerations within not-for-profit organizations for determining potential challenges to financial operations
 Analyze ethical considerations within not-for-profit entities for their impact on public image
 Evaluate how operational strengths and weaknesses of not-for-profit organizations impact their long-term sustainability

Margaret is a 40-year-old white female in for her annual examination. She states she has been under increased stress in her life for the past few months. She and her husband are currently separated and considering divorce. Her teenaged sons are acting out and she is working extra hours to make ends meet. Secondary to the increased stress she has started smoking again, “about a pack per day” and states “I know that I am not eating right.”
Margaret has been on the “pill” for almost 20 years and has always liked the method. She states the she has heard that smoking and taking the pill are not good, and she is worried about that. “I really do not need birth control since I am separated but just in case I probably need something.” She states that she has been in a mutually monogamous relationship (as far as she knows) since her marriage 18 years ago. She denies a new partner since her separation. Menarche was at 11 years, her cycles when on the pill are regular and very light. Her menstrual period should start tomorrow as she just finished her active pills. She denies a personal history of abnormal Pap smears, gynecological issues, hypertension (HTN), or diabetes. She is G2P2002, and her pregnancies were full term and uncomplicated at ages 24 and 26. Family history is significant for both parents with HTN and mom has type 2 diabetes. Her paternal grandfather died at age 64 years from type 2 diabetes, HTN, and coronary artery disease. Her other grandparents died in their late 70s early 80s and she is unaware of any medical issues.

Pap smear collected during speculum examination was normal. Bimanual examination reveals a retoverted, firm, mobile, nonenlarged, nontender uterus with negative cervical motion tenderness; adnexa nontender; and ovaries palpable bilaterally, mobile, without masses. Lower extremities were without edema or varicosities.
