WHY AND ABOUT THIS LIBRARY

Non-Profit Foundation Management Library is an open source library which aiming to solve your my management issues on non-profit foundation. Such as how to foundation choose leader, make decision, fundraising, how to plan and conduct programs and marketing for non-profit foundation.

Why This Happen

In an interview, I was asked : you departed from NGO for a few years, do you think you still fit for NGO (actually, it meant the job). It took me a while to answer that question. The logic of this question suggested you need stick with NGO stuff all along your life, if you want a NGO (Non-Profit Foundation) job again.

So this is it. At the very beginning , I built this library for that sake, to prove I was qualified the job (yet, I didn’t get that).

Now, this library built on solving the question:

How to manage a non-profit foundation after registration ?

Above is the first level. Management always mean control, plan and etc. Let’s ask further/big question:

How to run a non-profit foundation ?

In this level, we would answer

- how to manage it first ?
- how to make it sustainable ?
- what's the key factor in running a foundation ?
- how to measure the performance ....
etc.

Running a Non-Profit Foundation , including :

  • Foundation common management (the vision/mission/strategy/planing/activities, and hr, administration etc. );
  • Foundation Marketing and Development
  • Conducting programs or fund grants
