Welcome to our second national issue of the Nonprofit Quarterly. This issue debuts our new special departments. We have developed this section in response to readers’ requests that we cover topics of constant interest to nonprofit managers: fundraising, governance, financial management and accounting, human resources, advocacy and the spirit of our work. Our coverage of these topics will, of course, focus on the innovative and the provocative. These articles will also be of practical use in your everyday work.
