Nonprofit leaders know that solving pervasive social problems requires passion and creativity as well as tangible results. The The Non Nonprofit: For-Profit Thinking for Nonprofit Success 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 road map for any social venture looking to prove and boost its impact.
