Understanding Nonprofit Organizations examines the most important issues that face today’s leaders and managers of nonprofit organizations through the writing of scholars, consultants, and practicing executives. It focuses on governing, leading, and managing nonprofit organizations and how such organizations differ from both the public and private sectors.

Completely revised and updated, the third edition includes new articles on legal frameworks, philanthropy, managing volunteers and accountability, as well as an original essay on capacity building. In addition, the third edition features new, thought-provoking case studies by C. Kenneth Meyer―making it an even more student-friendly text for graduate and upper-division undergraduate nonprofit organizations and management survey courses.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for previous editions

Ott and Dicke should be applauded for their outstanding efforts, which bridge the macro and micro levels of the nonprofit sector for the first time and consequentially enrich the intellectual understanding of the field.”
Public Administration Review, Vol. 73, Issue 1, January/February, 2013

In my view, nothing competes with this book. It differs from all others in the foundational nature of its readings, the scope of coverage, and the introductory essays of the co-editors that synthesize concepts and knit together the ideas of others.”
Kathleen Hale, Auburn University

This is an excellent resource to give students a taste for research in the field. It covers a variety of topics across the gamut of nonprofit management, and the introductions to the topics are clear and make the issue interesting for my students. Without this book, the course would be shallow.”
Russell A. Cargo, Carroll College
