Overview

Praise for the Third Edition"Financial and Strategic Management for Nonprofit Organizations is elegant, helpful, accessible, and most of all pragmatic."—Regina E. Herzlinger, Nancy McPherson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, Harvard University "Bryce's fine and comprehensive book has become an indispensable resource for teachers and managers concerned with ensuring the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations. No longer a domain for amateur idealists, nonprofit organizations require professional knowledge and skill if they are to succeed in their missions. The new edition of this book is essential to that success."—Lawrence Lynn, Sydney Stein, Jr. Professor of Public Management, Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies, University of Chicago"Bryce effectively weaves legal and ethical considerations into his comprehensive treatment of nonprofit strategy and finance. A sound knowledge of the rules of the game is increasingly important for nonprofit leaders in making strategic choices."—Gregory Dees, Miriam and Peter Haas Centennial Professor in Public Service, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford University "Bryce's third edition is a must read for practitioners—managers as well as directors—of nonprofit management, particularly those whose focus is on the money-strategy interface. It should also serve as a useful text for graduate courses in nonprofit management."—Raymond Horton, chair of the Management Division and director of the Public and Nonprofit Management Program, Graduate School of Business, Columbia University "Nonprofit leaders need to respond to the increasing calls from the public for accountability, and Herrington Bryce provides the essential legal and financial elements of that responsibility. This is a must for the bookshelf."—Christine Letts, director of the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Institutions, The John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
