The defining feature of early America, according to Alexis de Tocqueville, was small groups of citizens banding together to do good works. There is increasing reliance today on non-profit groups to provide significant social services. Happily, there is also a simultaneous, exponential rise in potential philanthropists.
The non-profit market is not equipped to respond to this increasing supply and demand. most are small and under-capitalized. Some awkward barriers exist which discourage the involvement on new philanthropists. Non-profits must change the way they do “business” to meet this century’s challenges.
Co-written by two SVP Partners, this book is a translation guide that illustrates a new way of thinking for non-profits. By coupling modern business practices with soulful intent, by adopting new strategies to teach the new philanthropist how to play well in the non-profit space, non-profits can thrive.
For anyone wanting to make a difference – from the executive director to the weekend fundraiser to the new breed of donor-investor – this little green book will empower and inspire non-profits and their partners to have fun and change the world together.
