Your nonprofit is unique, you need a plan to match.

When you run a nonprofit, you run certain risks — it’s just part of the deal. How well you’re prepared to manage those risks, though, can mean the difference between an minor inconvenience and a major calamity.

My Risk Management Plan, a web-based program developed by Nonprofit Risk Management Center, enables you create an effective risk management plan that reflects your nonprofit’s needs, priorities, and culture. 

Build a plan tailored to your nonprofit.

Create your own risk management plan that focuses on what’s relevant to your nonprofit, your people, and your mission.

Develop a customized risk management plan for your nonprofit.

Select your plan elements or sections you choose to feature from pre-written template language — or draft your own.

Access and update your plan from anywhere, anytime.

The web-based program means you can expand, revise, or rewrite your risk management plan whenever you need to.  

Create a new plan, or modify an existing one.
