Religious service organizations play a central role in philanthropy in the United States. Society expects them (and their secular counterparts) to be "values-expressive," idealistic as well as pragmatic, upholding and promoting an identifiable set of social and moral values as well as providing particular services. This book provides the principles that can help these organizations foster good management and achieve their foundational goals. Jeavons highlights pragmatic concerns such as defining missions and the meaning of "effectiveness," assuring integrity, and shaping the future. He explores different approaches to organizational culture, the management of human resources, resource development and fund raising, and executive and board roles in leadership and planning. The book concludes with a summary of research findings, a discussion of critical points of attention for managers, and lessons other nonprofit organizations might learn from this research.
