When FILTHY RICH was first published in 1989, there were close to one million nonprofit organizations competing for cash to fund projects. Today, that number has more than doubled, and the competition for funding is as fierce as ever. While nonprofits' philanthropical outlook may distinguish them from their for-profit counterparts, they still have to keep an eye on the bottom line if they are to keep their projects funded and successful. In this revised and updated guide to running a nonprofit, Dr. Richard Steckel explains that, just like the most visionary venture capitalist, nonprofits must channel their dreams of grandeur into a goal-oriented, entrepreneurial organization. Follow Dr. Steckel's realistic, step-by-step plan to develop a strong vision, get your message heard, and make money to keep your nonprofit alive!

CHANGING THE WAY
YOU DO BUSINESS
The trouble with being poor is that it
takes up all your time.
WILLIAM DE KOONING, ARTIST
This book is about changing your nonprofit organization from a poor, grant-dependent, sand-kicked-in-your-face operation into one that is muscular and self-reliant. It is about paying your own way with earned income ventures, and about using those ventures to improve the delivery of your mission.
This book is also about changing the skinny way you think. For too long, nonprofits have been bound by assumptions that limit their effectiveness. No more. A new class of nonprofits has developed, with muscular attitudes and behaviors borrowed from the private sector. The private sector provides some excellent role modelsjust because they're brawny doesn't mean they're bad guys! So let's throw out your tacit tongue tssks right now.
We'll show you how to develop an entrepreneurial nonprofit, one that is goal- and customer-oriented. You will learn how to shape a strong, practical vision. You will see for yourself that your nonprofit can be innovative, risk-taking, and solvent; ventures will earn you predictable and unrestricted operating income. Above all, this book will help you sell your missionto broader audiences than you've ever dreamed.
