WHAT WE DO
Financial stewardship is not only a good biblical principle, it is also a business one. Organizations (both non-profit and for-profit) are always in need of funding to help accomplish their mission. BUT...just as important as the funding coming in, are the expenses going out.
Unfortunately, in many cases (especially in the non-profit world) the expense side of operations may not get the attention/focus that it really deserves.
Decision-making related to supply chain tasks (purchasing, transportation, logistics, etc.) resides with staff (or volunteers) that may not have the time, background, metrics, or contact network to take full advantage of the opportunities for savings that may exist.
Simply accomplishing the task may be considered a successful endeavor, not really realizing or understanding there may be an opportunity for additional savings. When you consider the Return On Investment for funding (which usually includes associated costs) and compare it to that of expenses, the adage “a dollar saved is a dollar earned” should really be “a dollar saved is MORE than a dollar earned”.
