Brokering – A revenue generating activity?Brokering could be considered a fund-raising activity. A non-profit organization (NPO) is able to provide services as long as it meets the goals, or is in service of the goals of the organization.
A concern would be if the service was so successful that it created substantial surpluses. This could be a concern for funding sources. Ideally, once the Broker Service is generating enough revenue to justify additional staff it becomes self-sustaining (i.e., covers its own costs and expansion).
