Non-Profit Organizations, particularly in NYC, face daunting
obstacles in providing for their office space needs . . .
Fund-raising for occupancy costs is difficult. Funders
would rather support programs than administrative costs. As a result,
tight budget restrictions limit the choice of possible locations.
Choice is further limited, especially in a tight market, by
landlord preferences. Some will just not rent to non-profits.
Others insist on lease clauses that unreasonably restrict visitor traffic.
Executive Directors and Board Members are attracted to their
positions by the mission of the organization, by the opportunity to help
make the world a better place. Their experience with commercial real
estate, however, may be limited.
Their experience with landlords and agents, and with the peculiar
economics of real estate, is usually even more limited. This puts
them at a severe disadvantage in negotiating with professionals who wheel
and deal in real estate day in and day out.
Even when a real estate service firm is retained to provide
assistance, the account is unlikely to be assigned to a senior
professional. Small and mid-sized non-profits simply do not receive
the same level of service that Fortune 500 companies routinely expect.
