    Can someone please provide some assistance with a question. Its for an MBA course and needs to be between 350 and 450 words or so. Which functional areas of your nonprofit are strongest?
    We divide the labor of the nonprofit into different categories and attempt to place staff with appropriate apptitudes and skills responsible for those various activities. We often have a financial officer who keeps track of the money for the organization. A fundraiser may be on staff to coordinate the fundraising activities, and the program staff will deliver the services to the nonprofit's clients.
    In your organization can you identify the functions that appear to be the strongest? Can you speculate on why that is so? Please include a question for your peers (other students)...Thank you so much in advance for your help. I really appreciate it.
