Abstract

Non-profit organizations face difficulties in obtaining financial funding for their social projects because there are more new competing organizations while the number of funding sources does not grow at the same rate. Therefore managers must have appropriate measuring means enabling them to achieve efficiency in financial funding. For this reason adaptation of the model of performance indicators based on those developed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Balanced Scorecard by Kaplan & Norton were proposed to help non-profit organizations raise funds. Four propositions of performance indicators were presented as well as two tables of performance indicators for organizations oriented to young children in order to exemplify the propositions and discussion results. The intention was to contribute new ideas for a better description of the theoretical concepts developed by USAID and Kaplan & Norton for supplying operational references to enhance management of social and non-profit organizations and facilitate funding.
