Introduction to Nonprofit Management: Text and Cases is a unique collection of 28 cases from Ivey Publishing at the Richard Ivey School of Business. This casebook helps students gain a better understanding of nonprofit management by providing contemporary cases from around the world, illustrating the complexity of nonprofit management in a variety of different sectors. Each chapter begins with a substantive introduction to the chapter topic by the editors. The book matches cases to the key concepts in nonprofit management, allowing students to discuss the outcomes and consider the reasons for success or failure. In addition to covering topical issues for managing a nonprofit organization, the book also discusses current trends in the field such as social entrepreneurship, earned income strategies, advocacy, lobbying and leadership.

The SAGE Text and Cases Series, featuring IVEY Cases, is a co-publishing partnership between SAGE and the Richard Ivey School of Business at The University of Western Ontario. Due to their popularity in more than 60 countries, approximately 200 new cases are added to the Ivey School of Business library each year. These affordable collections not only help students connect to real-world situations, but also benefit a professional readership seeking continued education in the field.

Editorial Reviews

Nathan Pelsma
“The case book is impressive in that it provides great examples of hard choices being made in nonprofits. Providing real experiences and opportunities leads to real decisions that the students can discuss, with outcomes that may either be successes or failures. I appreciate this immensely.”
Jama Rand
"A key strength is the diversity of the cases they have selected. The cases cover a sufficent range of issues faced by nonprofits, regardless of their size, providing students with a practical 'behind the scenes' perspective of nonprofit organizations. All too often we only see the 'public' face and forget the challenges, opportunities, pitfalls and successes these organizations face in everyday operations.”
