Nonprofit Management Principles and Practice 3rd edition 2013 by Michael J. Worth

Student friendly and comprehensive, this fully updated third edition of Nonprofit Management: Principles and Practice, by Michael J. Worth, provides a broad overview of key topics on and important trends affecting governance and management of nonprofit organizations, including the scope and structure of the nonprofit sector, leadership of nonprofits, managing the nonprofit organization, fundraising, earned income strategies, financial management, nonprofit lobbying and advocacy, managing international and global organizations, and social entrepreneurship. It is packed with current cases, timely examples, and updated data, and covers various nonprofit sub-sectors, including educational, health-related, arts-focused, human service, and advocacy organizations, among others. Written specifically for students, Nonprofit Management integrates research, theory, and the practitioner literature, and includes more information than is found in the more prescriptive, practitioner-oriented alternatives.

Editorial Reviews Review

¡°No textbook is perfect nor can it meet the needs of every professor, but this text comes pretty close.¡± (Mary Migliaro 2013-02-13)

¡°The book balances scholarship with practical illustrations of how the nonprofit sector functions.¡± (Gregg Kaufman 2013-02-13)

¡°I like the text and the way the chapters are structured; this structure will help me plan individual classes/lessons during the course. But more importantly, I think students will find the text easily understandable and helpful to them as they begin their careers as non-profit managers¡­. It has much potential to contribute to students¡¯ understandings of successful management of non-profit organizations.¡± (Catherine Hansman 2013-02-13)
