Financial planning and budgeting combine all the money taboos with that common disorder, math phobia. Put a spreadsheet in from of many nonprofit leaders, and they’ll run screaming from the room.
With their new book, The Board Member’s Easier Than You Think Guide to Nonprofit Finances, Andy and his co-author Nancy Wasserman help trustees (and their staff colleagues) confront and address this fear – with wisdom, clarity, humor, and humility.
The publisher offers deep discounts for bulk orders – buy one for each of your board members.
