Overview

Going Global for the Greater Good offers a unique look at the way  nonprofits—of any size—can increase their impact and better achieve their missions by engaging in the international community. Nonprofits that see themselves as part of a global community can provide a broader reach for programs, enhance the diversity of their organizations, raise their organizations’ profiles, and benefit from the ideas and experience of the global nonprofit community. But few organizations know how to take their place at the international table, and many smaller organizations don’t know whether it is realistic for them to try. This practical, user-friendly guide helps locally based organizations find connections in the ever-expanding global arena of ideas.

Read an Excerpt

Learn what it takes to Go Global

"Ms. Koenig's book offers practical, hands-on advice for both newcomers to the international arena as well as those with more experience in the field. A 'must-read' when you are beginning to engage internationally...a trusted companion as you continue your journey."
—Charles W. Gould, national president, Volunteers of America

"At a time when citizens around the world realize that their destiny is intrinsically linked with others in distant lands, and as transnational networks take new shape and form, this accessible and practical publication adds a much-needed body of knowledge that will support learning and practice about working on a global basis."
—Kumi Naidoo, secretary general and CEO, CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation

"Going global is both an opportunity and a responsibility for every NGO. The NGO community needs guidance in the processes of exploration and learning that are required to capitalize on the diversity the world has to offer. Bonnie Koenig provides an organized and thoughtful guide to help NGOs undertake this important growth process. I recommend its use as a guide in strategic planning as NGOs prepare for the future."
—Robert Long, vice president for programs, W. K. Kellogg Foundation

"Going Global provides the nonprofit sector in the United States with an immensely useful, hands-on guide to a wide range of possible international connections and dimensions. Koenig deals with everything from legal and communication barriers to complex management challenges. This book should be must-reading for any nonprofit manager even considering international ties."
—Julie Fisher, program officer, Kettering Foundation, and author, NGOs and the Political Development of the Third World
