Overview

Sustaining Nonprofit Performance: The Case for Capacity Building and the Evidence to Support It / Edition 1

Light (public service, New York U.) argues that the nonprofit sector suffers from a persistent underinvestment in its basic organizational infrastructure. Drawing on a national survey, he links capacity building to organizational performance and public confidence. The book is the third volume in Brookings' Nonprofit Effectiveness Project.
