Forces for Good: The Six Practices of High-Impact Nonprofits
By Leslie R. Crutchfield, Heather McLeod Grant
What makes great nonprofits great? In the original book, authors Crutchfield and McLeod Grant employed a rigorous research methodology derived from for-profit books like Built to Last. They studied 12 nonprofits that have achieved extraordinary levels of impact—from Habitat for Humanity to the Heritage Foundation—and distilled six counterintuitive practices that these organizations use to change the world.
This book has lessons for all readers interested in creating significant social change, including nonprofit managers, donors, and volunteers.
