Welcome to Lynn Eakin's website and resource centre.

Since 2007 I have been involved with the Ontario Nonprofit Network tackling the big policy issues facing our sector. I bring to these issues a distillation of my on-the-ground experience in the nonprofit sector, together with the results of years of reading research, articles, and news relating to trends and issues in the sector. I spent much my career in nonprofit management – writing grant proposals, raising money, managing budgets, and hiring and managing staff. In 1989 I moved into consulting and became a rescue management specialist, putting agencies in difficulty back together again.

These rescue experiences led me to undertake research and policy work on the challenges with funding and regulation of the nonprofit sector. This in turn led me to be involved with the founding of the Ontario Nonprofit Network, a sector network that works on the policy, funding and regulatory issue facing the sector. I continue to assist them in their policy development. For more detail please CLICK HERE.
