Inspiration comes from many avenues. In our WISE Bookshelf feature, members share some of the titles that have encouraged them to think outside of the box, try a new approach, dig down deep for the confidence they needed to make that big decision or simply allowed them a reprieve from the daily grind. Happy reading!

Book

Uncharitable by Dan Pallotta
Genre: Business, Nonprofit Organizations & Charities

Comments

I have often felt that many of the rules in place for non-profits prevent them from actually doing as much good as they would otherwise do if not subjected to those rules. Pallotta points to the differences between the success and failure of profits v. non-profits. While somewhat repetitive at times, he puts things in historical context and makes some great points about how we could do more good if we change the way we allow non-profits to function.
