Yours is an advocacy organization, and funding is often difficult for such nonprofits because most foundations are leery of supporting them. You have a donor who has been very generous; indeed, her gifts have underwritten a substantial portion of your budget. The organization takes a position on a local controversy in furtherance of and consistent with its mission. It turns out that the donor will be adversely affected if the organization prevails, and the donor makes it clear that support will stop if the organization doesn’t mute, or at least moderate, its position. It is possible to modify the position significantly without looking as if you have backed off, so other supporters will not know that you have bowed to the pressure. There is no way to make up for the loss of income in the short term, and you will have to fire three longtime staff members if the donor terminates support. What will you do?
