About the Author:

Lynne A. Weikart was associate professor at Baruch College School of Public Affairs, City University of New York, until her retirement. She is currently a practitioner in residence at James Madison University, where she teaches budgeting and financial management. Before her academic career, she held several high-level government positions, including budget director of the Division of Special Education in New York City (NYC) public schools and executive deputy commissioner of the New York State Division of Human Rights. For several years, she also served as the executive director of a nonprofit, City Project, a progressive fiscal think tank focused on reforming NYC's resource allocation patterns. Weikart's current research focuses on resource allocation in urban areas as well as on urban finance, and she has published many articles on these subjects. She is author of Follow the Money: Who Controls New York City Mayors? (2009) and the coauthor with Greg Chen of Budgeting and Financial Management for Nonprofits (2012). The latter was CQ Press. She won the Luther Gulick Award for Outstanding Academic from the New York Metropolitan Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration in 2001. Greg G. Chen is associate professor at Baruch College School of Public Affairs, City University of New York. He was a manager of the budgeting and financial reporting department in the Ministry of Finance, and budget manager and senior policy adviser for the Premier's Office of British Columbia, Canada, before taking his professorship in the United States. He had previously been an associate dean in the College of WISCO in China. Professor Chen conducts research and publishes papers in the areas of budgeting and financial management for nonprofit organizations and governments, program evaluation and cost-benefit analysis of diverse public programs, and comparisons of the health care systems and finance in Canada, the United States, and China. Ed Sermier is an adjunct professor at both Baruch College School of Public Affairs, City University of New York and at the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, where he teaches a courses in nonprofit finance, management, and leadership. He is also an independent consultant specializing in nonprofit financial planning and management.

He developed the Financial Toolkit for Nonprofit Executives and Board Members, which provides a means to make financial data understandable to an organization's decision makers. He holds an MBA from Columbia University.

Review:

"Weikart, Chen, and Sermier aim to provide practical and useful insights into the problems faced by nonprofit board members and financial managers. They succeed very well indeed, outlining new formats for analysis and serving up sound advice for the real world issues of nonprofit financial management." -- Dall Forsythe "Budgeting and Financial Management for Nonprofit Organizations fills the need for a text focused solely on nonprofit organizations. Its treatment of financial topics as they apply to nonprofits is instructive, accessible, and appealing. The book's depth and breadth are a welcome contribution to the field." -- Gary Rassel "Budgeting and Financial Management for Nonprofit Organizations is a welcome addition to the field. The book's exclusive focus on nonprofits allows it to cover a variety of relevant financial management techniques and apply them in assignments and cases that present numerous and practical financial situations. Professors and students alike will appreciate its straightforward, user-friendly approach. I strongly recommend this book!" -- Jay Eungha Ryu
