The Intrepid Nonprofit

Strategies for Success in Turbulent Times

The Intrepid Nonprofit  examines difficult challenges facing nonprofits, such as shrinking or stagnating revenue sources, technological change, under-performing boards, staff turnover, mission drift, or measuring intangible results. Drawing insights from organizations that have not only prospered but sometimes achieved outstanding results, the book outlines practical strategies for success, including some out-of-the-box approaches to leadership. It also calls upon governments and foundations to do more to support the sector.

Tomorrow’s nonprofit leaders will have to be intrepid—resolute, imaginative, adaptable, and courageous. This book will inspire and sustain them when the going gets tough.
