Failure to plan for this awkward middle stage can lead to discouragement and even failure. The authors believe that the best way to anticipate this challenge is to develop a long-term business plan that anticipates all three stages in a foundation's growth and development -- a plan that forecasts both the increase in the funds available for grantmaking purposes and the resources required to support the cost of core operations.
