Nonprofit organizations (especially ones that are small or mid-sized) often run on very tight budgets. In those situations, boards, leaders, and managers may choose not to invest financial resources in their own growth and development. Frequently, most of the funds raised are invested in the people served by the organization.
For these reasons, Fundraising Leadership created a number of FREE nonprofit resources including Brilliant Conversations, ebooks, guides, tipsheets, and reading lists so that professionals are able to invest in themselves.
At the most basic level, Board Members want to know that they can be successful in their roles. They want to work with other leaders that have integrity and are trustworthy. All too often there is confusion, competing priorities, lack of vision, and poor alignment and communication on Boards. That is a ready-made formula for board member turnover and organizational floundering.
Fundraising Leadership created this guide to help Board Members avoid that mess.

In modern nonprofit organizations, the wisdom of ancient philosophy still provides some tools that we can use today. Some of that philosophy comes from the Stoics such as Marcus Aurelius who was arguably the greatest leader ever to have ruled the Roman Empire. He was greatly influenced by the Greek philosopher, Epictetus. Aurelius’ Meditations and Epictetus’ Enchiridion are two works that come down to us through history as guides for the Stoic Way of living and leading. In this short eBook, David Langiulli engages the Philosopher and the Emperor in a series of dialogues about leadership in the modern era.
There are thousands of leadership and management books, audio programs, and other tools available for nonprofit professionals. You do not have time to sort through them all.
