Hot Off the Press: Nonprofit Management 101 Book

Nonprofit Management 101VolunteerMatch’s very own President, Greg Baldwin, has joined with 50 of the nonprofit sector’s leading experts to add our ideas to “Nonprofit Management 101,” a new guide for anyone new to the nonprofit sector or those looking to expand their expertise.

Darian Rodriguez Heyman, former Executive Director of Craigslist Foundation, aggregated this comprehensive how-to manual and resource guide featuring practical insights and tips. It also provides easy to implement solutions for organizations seeking to meet mission and maximize impact. You can think of it as your compass for the social sector.

To point you in the right direction for successful volunteer recruitment, Greg Baldwin contributed to this chapter as the voice of VolunteerMatch’s long experience in helping nonprofits to recruit volunteers. Learn from him about who your volunteers are, what they expect from a volunteer experience with you, how to design great opportunities, how to attract the volunteers that best fit your needs, and more. We also recommend browsing the chapter on volunteer management for some key information and resources from the Points of Light Institute.

Everything you need to launch, lead and effectively grow your nonprofit is in this book. The guide covers the spectrum of social sector management issues, including individual, corporate and foundation fundraising; earned income; social media; marketing and PR; events; board and volunteer engagement; lobbying and advocacy and more.

In addition to VolunteerMatch’s Greg Baldwin and folks from the Points of Light Institute, contributors to the book include Paul Hawken, Lynne Twist, Ami Dar, Kay Sprinkel Grace, Beth Kanter, and 45 others, all of whom write in a no-nonsense, “by practitioners-for practitioners” style. The book represents the first time such a comprehensive set of topics has been addressed in one place in such a practical format.
