Description-
  • The authors offer a framework that allows organizations to go beyond quick fixes and fundraising strategies to a broader paradigm that encompasses community and organization building. What if every person involved with an organization was fully engaged and shared a common goal? What if the efforts of a relatively small ring of staff and board members were amplified by everyone touched by the organization, including current and former volunteers, staff, board members, clients, constituents, funders and supporters? That, the authors show, is the way a charismatic organization operates. The book provides numerous examples of how successful organizations have made this shift, as well as action steps that all organizations can take to perform better.

    "In today's interdependent world, nonprofit organizations have more opportunity than ever before to make a difference in people's lives. Drawing upon their extensive experience in public service, Shirley Sagawa and Deborah Jospin identify the traits that give successful nonprofits the competitive edge they need to maximize their effectiveness and sustainability. The Charismatic Organization: Eight Ways to Grow a Nonprofit That Builds Buzz, Delights Donors, and Energizes Employees draws an authoritative blueprint for using social capital to transform good intentions into concrete results."-- Former President Bill Clinton

About the Author-
  • Shirley Sagawa and Deborah Jospin run a successful consulting practice, sagawa/jospin, working with dozens of clients in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, from national nonprofits, foundations, and corporations to small start-ups and local groups on resource development, innovation, strategy, partnerships, and public policy. A national leader, expert on policy and philanthropy, and former presidential adviser, Shirley Sagawa has been called a "founding mother of the modern service movement." Deborah Jospin is the former director of AmeriCorps. During her tenure, AmeriCorps grew to an annual budget of $234 million with 60,000 members serving in 925 programs.
