Two New Nonprofit Studies

1. Thanks to the Mission Based Management Blog for making me aware of this! The Center for Civil Society at Johns Hopkins University just released a report by Lester M. Salamon titled, "Employment in America’s Charities: A Profile." The Center’s website also includes links to other great reports from their Nonprofit Employment Data Project.

2. The Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Arizona State University has a new Initial Self Assessment Tool for nonprofits which is part of their, "Principles of Effectiveness in Nonprofit Organizations program." The 10 core principles are focused on:

  • Vision, Mission & Values
  • Board Leadership & Governance
  • Strategic Planning
  • Program Design & Evaluation
  • Fund & Resource Development
  • Human Resource Management
  • Financial Management
  • Knowledge & Operational Management (yippee!!)
  • External Relations – PR & Communications
  • Advocacy & Public Policy
