Great Foundations is a practical guide for people working in not-for-profit organisations, especially aspiring Board members and CEOs and people for whom this is new territory. It is for people who want to make the most effective contribution they can to their chosen not-for-profit organisation.
The title explores the importance of giving attention to all parts of a not-for-profit organisation-and understanding why the back office should really be front of mind at least some of the time; why a slick marketing message is not enough without solid program delivery; why you need to know what is under the bonnet of your not-for-profit's engine from a legal perspective; and why thoughtful planning and active networks are critical to your not-for-profit's survival.
After many years working as a Board member, lawyer, CEO and adviser within and to not-for-profit organisations, Catherine Brown has written Great Foundations to share her knowledge about not-for-profit organisations. It will also give you ideas about how your experience in other sectors can add real value to a not-for-profit Board or organisation.
Great Foundations will give you the information to ask the right questions-when they need to be asked.
