Enhance your organization's impact! Philip Bernstein -- former member of the Board of Directors of Independent Sector and past Executive Vice President of the Council of Jewish Federations -- reviews the "best practices" adopted by successful nonprofit organizations, explaining the procedures that foster social achievement in all nonprofit fields. It will help you to: define purposes and goals and adhere to missions; obtain and retain high-quality volunteers and staff; create comprehensive financing plans; respond to change by adjusting services and operations; evaluate services to assess effectiveness; communicate goals both internally and externally; and much more. This volume is also highly recommended for courses in nonprofit management.
