Abstract (300 words maximum)

The purpose of this project is to demonstrate that a nonprofit’s mission statement is susceptible to change due its funder. And as a result, their mission and the organizational culture may change. A lack of transparency and trust could overcome the organization. However, they are accountable for achieving the mission for which they have been established and granted special benefits (Young, 2002). A youth organization in Marietta, GA has been experiencing this issue since they are 100% dependent on one funder. And this has directly changed the mission and services of this organization. To evaluate this a survey was done of the students who benefit from the program to understand their perception. After performing a sample survey of fourteen (14) teenagers, the project reports the preliminary findings and makes recommendations on how to work in the currents conditions with the organization’s original mission.
