Understanding Nonprofit Organizations features the most insightful classic and recent articles on managing nonprofit organizations in the United States. Selected writings from scholars, consultants, and practicing executives focus on governing, leading, and managing nonprofit organizations and how nonprofits differ from the public and private sectors.

Completely revised and updated with twenty new readings, the second edition speaks to the most crucial issues facing today's leaders and managers of nonprofit organizations. Each part opens with a framing essay that identifies central issues and summarizes the contribution each reading has made to the field. With topics covering legal frameworks, fundraising, managing volunteers, accountability, and much more, Understanding Nonprofit Organizations remains the most essential and up-to-date compendium of essays on the nonprofit sector.

The second edition of Understanding Nonprofit Organizations will be applauded by students, instructors, and practitioners This eagerly anticipated new edition is a major revision and adds many recent articles by key scholars and fresh new topics required for anyone wishing to understand this fascinating dynamic sector [W]ill be a standard assigned text for nonprofit courses and should be found on practitioners' must read' lists.”

A welcome contribution to the literature of the nonprofit sector [that] explains in useful terms what we need to know about nonprofit organizations, how they function, and how they can effectively be led and managed. [The] chapters have been written by leading scholars and professionals, and they are organized and presented in ways that bring important clarity to the management of this new world of nonprofit organizations. We are fortunate to have this valuable resource to inform our work in these exciting times.”
