Publisher's Summary

A top business leader shares the business principles he used to launch both a top company and a thriving nonprofit.
Nonprofit leaders know that solving pervasive social problems requires passion and creativity as well as tangible results. The Non Nonprofit shares the same business principles that drive the world's best companies, showing how they can (and should) be applied to the realm of nonprofits. Steve Rothschild personally crossed sectors when he left corporate America to found Twin Cities RISE!, a highly successful poverty reduction program. His honest story, and success and missteps, create an essential roadmap for any social venture looking to prove and boost its impact.


Distills essential nonprofit principles such as having a clear and appropriate purpose, creating economic value from social benefit, and establishing mutual accountability
Shares successful approaches from innovative organizations such as Grameen Bank, Playworks, Common Ground, Habitat for Humanity, Lumni, Caring Bridge, College Summit and RISE!
Draws from the author's success in founding and building Twin Cities RISE!, which trains unemployed Minnesotans for living wage jobs. RISE! serves 1,500 participants each year
As insightful as it is inspiring, The Non Nonprofit can help maximize the positive impact of any nonprofit.

Questionable

Rothschild's book isn't one to be enjoyed; it's not even a how to guide in which I was hoping for. It is simply a book about the success of his non-profit. It doesn't even tell the sands of basics of where to start. All I can say is that I bought the book on audio and in hardback so that I would learn; the only thing I learned is not to buy both.
