    PERFECT NONPROFIT BOARDS: MYTHS, PARADOXES, AND PARADIGMS. Stephen R. Block. Needham Heights, MA. : Simon & Schuster, 1998. 149pp. Main Library Stacks HD2745 .B558 1998
    Challenges nonprofit managers to cast aside traditional models of board governance. In his latest book, Stephen Block asserts that almost all current advice and wisdom to nonprofit boards is a formula for frustration and failure ---including approaches often promoted in board training and board development retreats. The first part of the book can be used as a primer on nonprofit organizations, the position of executive director, and nonprofit boards. The last half of the book discusses the importance of adopting new paradigms for board and executive director leadership, and suggests adapting theory-based tools for motivating and improving performance.

    The nonprofit sector is well known for its lofty goals, whether they include creating a peaceful society or teaching every child how to read. In many cases, however, such idealism bears the costs of long hours, low pay, and burnout.

    For board members considering or using the "policy governance" approach -- a rigidly structured, top-down management strategy -- this book presents the experiences of eight non-profit organizations, one small business, and two municipal agencies that employ the practice. "Policy governance" is the 20-year old trusteeship theory developed by the author and consultant John Carver. The model is based on the premise that board members must assume a more-authoritative role in running things, as if they were the owners of an organization and not merely its managers.

    In a world of limited funding, grantseeking is extremely competitive.

Included are practical advice and examples on developing proposal ideas, identifying funding sources, creating systems and procedures to support grantseeking activities, developing proposal components, budget forecasting, submission procedures, and follow-up techniques. New to this edition, though, are more extensive information on family foundations; updated websites, including 25% more than in the last edition; more examples of successful proposals, including 9 sample letters complete with annotations; expanded instructions on evaluation and outcomes assessment, which are critical to successful applications; and guidance on project sustainability after grant termination, a factor crucial to securing funding. The volume also includes checklists and a bibliography.

    This book discusses how nonprofit organizations can identify and gather information about people who might make large donations. Cecilia Hogan, development researcher at the University of Puget Sound, in Tacoma, Wash., describes both the role researchers play in an organization's fund-raising efforts and the specific approaches they use to help charities win contributions. Before proceeding with research on donors, Ms. Hogan warns, nonprofit organizations must put in place and enforce policies to protect the privacy of the people they are investigating. She lists criteria for distinguishing fund-raising information that is publicly available, accurate, and relevant from information that is too invasive. And she advises charities to consider carefully who in their organizations should have access to what information and how donor files should be stored or, when no longer needed, destroyed. The book describes how to compile a large list of potential donors and determine how much each might contribute; it also advises researchers on presenting fund raisers with background information about prospective donors that might be helpful during solicitations. The book includes sample documents to keep track of donor information and a list of Web pages and contact information for organizations that might help fund-raising researchers.
