Sustainability projects refers to the ability of the project to continue its mission into the future without requiring intervention in its organizational, financial or community bases once it is established by a given body or group.
Organizational sustainability means that a structure has been put in place to maintain organizational functions after the initial project phase is completed. For example, a program might us social media to publicize its research findings, and also help attract new volunteer organizers to the organization.
Community sustainability is the process by which the community continues to be involved with and supports the project activities once it has been established by having a process to add new community members when others leave.
Financial sustainability means that the financial support required for a project has been established in such a way that it will be re-generated continuously after the initial grant has been spent – either by earning money itself or relying on an on-going donation stream.
