Established nonprofits

It is concisely explained and immediately helpful for our startup nonprofit, but I would think it also useful for established nonprofits as well who find themselves so caught up in daily operations that they have forgotten important basics.

Wonderful Audio book !!

Used this book to enhance my knowledge of fundraising. This book helped focus my thinking, but sadly more on what we need than on how I can help do it.
