Why NPQ is printing only this article on “Founder Syndrome” today

This original article by Betsy Schmidt is emblematic of what sets NPQ apart as a resource for you. It is challenging of false assumptions, insightful, grounded in the realities of the sector and timely/relevant as many take on the issues of succession planning. It respects research but is acutely focused on helping nonprofit leaders wisely and practically negotiate the complex realities of their work lives.

These are the characteristics that distinguish NPQ from all other publications for nonprofits.

We do not charge you for this because we want to make sure even the most financially stretched up and coming leader has access. But we depend upon your support?

We are in the last few days (we hope) of our fundraising campaign for the summer but are not yet close to our goal. We need another $30,000 to see our way forward. Please take a moment and make your donation or pledge today.

A donation of $1,100 puts you in the board giver’s circle but a donation of $10,000 will make you our hero of the year. Pledges and donations of all sizes however are deeply appreciated.
