Full Description

This report, prepared for the Kettering Foundation by the Harwood Institute, reveals that nonprofit community organizations face two realities that often seem to conflict: The first is to generate a stronger connection with the communities they work in. The second is the need to demonstrate accountability to the donors who finance them and to the individuals and groups they serve. Findings outlined in this report were obtained in interviews with 75 board presidents of school boards, local foundations, and other civic organizations.
