Now in its third edition, the highly successful Financial and Strategic Management for Nonprofit Organizations provides an encyclopedic account of all the key financial, legal, and managerial issues facing nonprofit executives. Organized into twenty detailed chapters, this comprehensive reference provides a firm grounding in the five fundamental pillars of effective nonprofit management: Mission, Money, Marketing, Management, and Membership. It then shows managers and trustees how to strengthen operations in each of these vital areas ethically, legally, and efficiently.
