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.

Not-for-profit organizations play a critical role in the American economy, but little attention is paid to the pressures and challenges that affect their governance. We know such firms don't try to maximize profits, but what do they maximize? "The Governance of Not-for-Profit Organizations" tackles that question headon, assembling experts on the not-for-profit sector to examine the diverse and wide-ranging concerns of universities, art museums, health care providers - and even the medieval church. Contributors look at a number of different aspects of not-for-profit operations, from the problems of fundraising, endowments, and governance to specific issues like hospital advertising. The picture that emerges is complex and surprising - one in which some institutions function as efficiently as for-profit firms, while others appear to be maximizing the interests of their elite workers, rather than those of their donors, customers, or society at large.

The allocation of limited public and private resources depends on reliable data and empirical analysis, and The Future of Philanthropy is filled with hard--to--find data, graphs, and charts, as well as full citation and source lists at the end of each chapter. It raises unsettling questions about the very assumptions upon which nonprofits are built and financed and about the future of nonprofit and philanthropic decision--making. Written to provoke thoughtful debate, as well as illuminate elusive objective data, this resource also sheds new light on the challenges that face the nation's "Third Sector" as public and governmental regulation has become more focused on the transparency and accountability of philanthropy and its recipients.
