  1. DYNAMICS: key definitions and structural realities of the funding type.

  2. CAPITAL: how the funding type draws on and contributes to various forms of organizational capital.

  3. INFRASTRUCTURE: what staffing, systems, and other forms of organizational infrastructure are essential to managing this funding type well.

  4. LEADERSHIP: the skills and mindsets necessary among executive leadership and board members to develop and sustain this kind of funding.

  5. CULTURE: the impact on organizational culture when this funding type is one of an organization's primary funding streams.

  6. METRICS: typical ways of measuring and reporting on effectiveness with this funding type.
