Chasing Success: The Challenge for Nonprofits - Sample Chapters Open Access Deposited
Date Modified: 10/17/2023
A study of nonprofit administration, using the organization Every Child Succeeds as an example.
Chasing Success follows the first twenty years of the organization Every Child Succeeds under the leadership of their former President turned author, Judith Van Ginkel. Every Child Succeeds is a regional nonprofit located in Cincinnati, Ohio that focuses on home visitation and support for parents from pregnancy through the first one thousand days of their newborn's life. The organization was born in the 1990s out of widespread scientific evidence about the impacts of early childhood on development across the lifespan.
Chasing Success uses the story of Every Child Succeeds as a case study for readers interested in the changing landscape of nonprofit administration. With the benefit of Van Ginkel's years of experience in nonprofit management, this book offers concrete lessons about developing a new nonprofit, utilizing research and best practices, learning to be adaptable, and being accountable to stakeholders. Van Ginkel also explores how changing policies and funding priorities for larger national nonprofits and the state and federal governments can impact how regional nonprofits work to achieve their missions, an often underappreciated and under-discussed reality for many smaller organizations around the country.
