What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"Wow, could I have used this book when I launched my first nonprofit twenty years ago—without 80 percent of the useful information in here. Thousands of nonprofits are created every year. Few will be as successful as those who read this A-to-Z book and connect their dream with the reality checklist provided by Jill Esau."
—Dr. Robert C. Andringa, president, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities

"There are people among us with a vision and a passion to change the world. But vision and passion without structure and focus have little power. If this remarkable book helps just a few of those visionaries to put their faith into action in tangible and practical ways and realize their dreams, it may well change the world."
—Rich Stearns, president, World Vision US
