"A unique book with a unique approach, this is destined to become a classic." --Charitable Gift Planning News In this deeply humane and informative book, Douglas White deftly weaves together personal insight and level-headed advice in a probing look at the human side of planned giving. He helps you understand, develop, and use the interpersonal skills that are an essential part of every successful planned giving officer's art. White provides practical answers to such crucial questions as: How do I successfully approach a prospect for a planned gift? What are the steps to building a prospect's trust and instilling a sense of mission? How can I tell if I'm being too aggressive--or not aggressive enough? How do I handle a donor's lawyer and other advisors who don't support the gift? Tracing the entire process of acquiring a planned gift from the first phone call to managing the gift's assets, White offers many helpful pointers on how to deal with donors, their families, and their professional advisors, as well as executive directors and board members within your organization. He also helps you translate technical knowledge into planned gifts that are better for both donors and charities. The first book to take you beyond the mere mechanics and into the very soul of planned giving, The Art of Planned Giving is an important working resource for planned giving officers, fund-raising professionals and consultants, as well as nonprofit executives and board members.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED As not-for-profits must increasingly achieve greater results with less resources, they are continually seeking ways to use such scarce resources with more economy, with greater efficiency of processes and people within their organizations, and with increased effectiveness of results in order to further their missions. Whether used alone or together with other tools such as benchmarking, activity-based management, and flexible budgeting, the operational review is the tool best used to perform an evaluation of these crucial three e's-economy, efficiency, and effectiveness. This book shows not-for-profit managers why conducting an operational review can be beneficial, explains the tools and personnel needed to conduct the review, and shows in detail how to conduct a review of operations in each area. It includes case study materials for a social service agency, a museum operation, an arts organization, a community service agency, and a college business office. Here is accessible, comprehensive coverage of: * How to approach an operational review, judge its results, and make recommendations to management * How to position your not-for-profit organization more effectively in the competitive world of funding, personnel, resources, and service results * How to identify and implement best practices within funding and operational constraints in all areas of the not-for-profit's operations in an organized program of continuing improvements . . . and much more, including extensive exhibits, forms, working tools, checklists, and examples for conducting an operational review throughout all functions of a not-for-profit organization. Executive directors, outside auditors, CPAs, manage-ment consultants, boards, fund-raising executives, and all others involved in the not-for-profit's operations will learn to get the most for their mission from this indispensable book.

Praise for Nonprofit Boards That Work "This book offers a refreshing and candid look at the challenges of nonprofit boards.

A must for any executive director who needs reassurance that building effective boards is tough work, but well worth the effort."-Sherry Rockey, Executive Director, International Women's Media Foundation "Maureen Robinson is uniquely qualified to help us understand the issues related to boards that are effective, those that are not, and why. It is certain that board members, potential board members, and executive directors who read this book will better understand their roles and responsibilities, and will be better able to avoid common pitfalls. As a result, the impact of their efforts on those whom their organizations exist to serve will be enhanced."-Ron Burkard, Executive Director, World Neighbors As more than 10 million people in the United States alone say yes to board service, they also expect to see their time and talents used effectively.

A SIMPLE, PRACTICAL PLAN FOR BUILDING A GREAT, EFFECTIVE BOARD Every nonprofit board wants to be great. But the reality is, few are. It's one of the great puzzles of governance. How do you mold highly talented individuals with diverse backgrounds, limited time, and no governance expertise into an effective board? The Strategic Board provides the answer. Drawing on more than twenty years of nonprofit experience, Mark Light outlines a practical model that overcomes the built-in deficiencies of nonprofit boards and guides them to strategic effectiveness. The Strategic Board(TM) model of governance is a step-by-step, easy-to-implement, multilevel course of action that enables a board to craft a comprehensive Governance Plan(TM) that: * Develops a Leadership Plan that determines "Where to go tomorrow?" * Creates a Delegation Plan that specifies "Who does what?" * Follows through with a Management Plan that decides "What gets done today?" * Puts in place a Vigilance Plan to answer the question "Did it happen?" The Strategic Board approach doesn't dictate the answers. Rather, it makes sure you ask all the right questions as you outline your goals and focus on achieving them. It's a uniquely flexible blueprint for better functioning that will at last connect your board's work about where you go tomorrow with your staff's work on what gets done today. Every nonprofit board dreams of greatness. Here are the tools to achieve it.
