Item description for Streetsmart Financial Basics for Nonprofit Managers by Thomas A. McLaughlin...
Essential, accessible guidelines for interpreting and using financial information

"After thirty-three years of managing in the nonprofit sector, I find I could have used the information in Streetsmart when I first began my career. The book is a must-read for anyone interested in the effective management of nonprofit organizations." -George W. Kessinger, President and CEO, Goodwill Industries International, Inc.
"The first edition of McLaughlin's book was a masterpiece-clearly written, concise, and insightful. These traits also characterize the Second Edition. This is an excellent text for students and also a reference that every nonprofit professional should have on their bookshelf." -Norman A. Dolch, PhD, Director of the Nonprofit Programs and Professor of Sociology Louisiana State University in Shreveport
"Tom McLaughlin contributes a valuable tool to those working for the betterment of society in the nonprofit fields: an important, highly readable, intelligent review of those issues which determine success and failure. All too often, well-meaning nonprofit managers find their organizations in constant crisis due to their mission-focus and mission-drive to the detriment of sound financial management. Streetsmart Financial Basics is a fast way of balancing management skills short of returning for an MBA." -Jeffrey R. Solomon, PhD, President, The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies
