Project Description

There is increasing pressure for financial resources and funding in nonprofits to meet growth commitments and innovative strategies for sustainability. Wesley Mission, an Australian nonprofit worldwide church ministry, is pioneering a new system of reporting and leadership. This study will assess the relationship between leadership, at various levels throughout the organisation, performance at the organisational and departmental levels, and assess the role of organisation and department climate as a mediator of this relationship. The results will identify leadership and organisational characteristics required for a transferable model of success among similar Australian nonprofit organisations.
