“The most comprehensive and current textbook available on nonprofit management. Essential for the classroom.”
—Robert Silverman, University at Buffalo  

Nonprofit Management: Principles and Practice, the first comprehensive textbook written for the Nonprofit Management course, covers such topics as the scope and structure of the nonprofit sector, leadership of nonprofits, managing the nonprofit organization, fundraising, nonprofit enterprise, financial management, collaborations and mergers, nonprofit lobbying and advocacy, and international trends. Written specifically for students, this text integrates research, theory, and the practitioner literature and includes more than is found in the more prescriptive, practitioner-oriented alternatives. Providing an overview suitable for students enrolled in their first course in the field, the book also includes cases and discussions of advanced issues for those with experience.

Review:

“The most comprehensive and current textbook available on nonprofit management. Essential for the classroom.”
(Robert Silverman 20081223)

"As a practitioner/instructor, I find your book enormously helpful and the feedback I am receiving from students is very positive. While each chapter is packed with information, I am particularly grateful for the journal articles and case studies that are linked to the chapters. In addition to the course content, I organized the course around a particular issue, domestic violence in Baldwin County, GA. I’ve had three people speak to DV and another six who match up with the chapter themes – an executive director, evaluator/assessment person, donor relations, community foundation CEO, grant writer, etc. visit the class each week. I simply want to thank you for Nonprofit Management: Principles and Practices." (Gregg Kaufman 20091230)

"Your book provides great coverage of many of the topics we address, and allowed me to dispense with a lot of readings as you covered the topics more clearly and thoroughly. I like that the book is well-grounded in research and experience, yet accessible to students. The class has been a big success and I look forward to using your book in years to come." (Jill Purdy 20090531)

"Great book! Perfect for all aspects of management." (Even Freeman Wakefield 20090807)
