Partnerships for Health and Human Service Nonprofits: From Collaborations to Mergers by JD Tine Hansen-Turton MGA

"This text is filled with examples of leaders who have been responsive to change. They have built adaptable, learning-focused, and meaningfully networked organizations that are flourishing. I encourage you to determine which aspects of their experiences are most suitable to your circumstances and cultivate the essential competencies of leadership that will propel your organization forward in a 21st-century environment of dynamic transition and endless possibility."

-Diana Aviv
President and CEO, Independent Sector

The ability to respond effectively to change is perhaps the most important factor in determining the success or failure of a non-profit organization. This practical textbook, reflecting trends and developments in the nonprofit sector over the past decade, encompasses the core competencies required to lead nonprofit organizations through social innovation and impact during the 21st century. It distills the wisdom of leaders from highly successful non-profit organizations in the U.S., who have weathered a difficult recession and flourished amidst economic globalization, geopolitical shifts, and startling technological change. These contributors provide a comprehensive framework for running and managing nonprofits, including the tools needed to affect social change through ethical practices, management and leadership business strategies, social marketing, and policy analysis across government, nonprofits, and philanthropy.

Authors describe how they were able to stay afloat during difficult times while still meeting their missions, providing quality services, and realizing outcomes that make their services relevant to funders, self-sustaining, and even profitable. The book addresses solutions to key problems for nonprofit professionals: creating a return on investment defined by concrete outcomes and ability to demonstrate their organization's impact. Chapters discuss the fundamentals of and best practices for financial management, evaluating and managing organizational impact, disruptive vs. sustainable innovations, characteristics of next-generation non-profits, and much more. Several case studies are presented by practitioners who have used innovative principles to organize, create, and manage ventures to influence social change locally, regionally, and beyond.
