Description


Nonprofit organizations in the United States have exploded over the past two decades, and while many books touch on aspects of these organizations, few directly address the principles and practices incoming workers need to know to become leaders in the field. This volume begins with a history of nonprofits, as well as a discussion of the theories and ethical issues surrounding them, and then provides guidance on how to create, lead, and manage an effective organization. Subsequent chapters cover key issues in human resources; organizational growth and renewal; strategic planning; community relations; fundraising; program evaluation; accountability, particularly financial; and the future of nonprofits. Competition and scarcity of funding has forced nonprofits to produce even more capable managers. This textbook is the best resource for schools of social work, public administration, business, law, public health, and adult education, and it is a vital tool for instructors in resource centers serving nonprofits.
