This is a good intermediate level book on nonprofit finance, complete with practical leadership tips. It is a lot of content to digest if you do not already have a basic understanding of nonprofit finance.

It has helped our corporation and board members understand the financial information that is presented and have clearer oversight over the monthly reports and the yearly budgets.

A clear presentation of budgeting and financial concepts for non-profit leaders (including program managers). Chock full of great examples to train audiences in reading financial information and telling financial stories. Also provides approaches for assessing programmatic cost effectiveness and spending. A great tool for discussions with leadership or for addressing places where an organization may be stuck.

This book came recommended to me. I appreciate the tools to help get accurate financial data. Also the "Red, Yellow, Green" evaluation relates to my background with lean manufacturing, this provides a quick visual indication of the areas we need to focus on. We have been working over the years to improve our financial data, this book is another step forward on that journey.

This book provides practical suggestions and can be used with 'non-finance' board members to help build their capacity and oversight of the organization.

As the board chair of a 300K nonprofit, I found this book to be more in depth that I needed. As the title states it if for Nonproift Executives and probably larger nonprofits at that. I'm sure the concepts are valid for all nonprofits. It was a little too much for me in my role at our nonprofit.

An excellent resource book on financial leadership, especially for executive directors with limited background in finances. It's a fairly easy read but packed with relevant information on resource management.
