Michael J. Worth’s best-seller, Nonprofit Management: Principles and Practice, provides a comprehensive, insightful overview of key topics nonprofit leaders encounter daily. Worth covers both the governance and management of nonprofit organizations—the scope and structure of the nonprofit sector, leadership of nonprofits, management, fundraising, earned income strategies, financial management, lobbying and advocacy, managing international and global organizations, and social entrepreneurship—helping readers understand what they are and how they work. The text balances research, theory, and practitioner literature with current cases and the most recent data available, making it appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students, and nonprofit professionals.
The Sixth Edition has been updated to include new material regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion; volunteer stewardship; nonprofit executive transitions; models for pursuing earned income; ethical dilemmas and controversial donors; generational differences in the workplace; and an exploration of the role of nonprofits in advancing social movements.
