New book on nonprofit governance
Global Associates Simona Biancu and Alberto Cuttica published “Board in Fila Prima” (Board in the First Row) in September 2020.
The governing bodies of nonprofit organizations often find themselves “in a complicated relationship” with the fundraising activity and with those who manage it. This is a relationship confounded by misunderstandings, unrealized expectations and possible frustrations. Not everyone is always rowing in the same direction of ensuring the sustainability of the organization through full involvement and equal collaboration between those who have the reins of the organization and fundraisers. This book outlines ways in which this complicated relationship can be remade to the good of the organization and the mutual benefit of all.
