Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

However, models for good foundation governance do exist. One such example is a slim tome titled Trustees and the Future of Foundations. Written by John W. Nason and published in 1977, the book provides one of the few comprehensive looks at the roles and responsibilities of foundation trustees. Although the statistics in his first book are outdated (he refers to 26,000 foundations with combined total assets of approximately $31.5 billion) his recommendations remain valid today.
Nason does an excellent job of summarizing his main points in the final chapter where he lists the following nine responsibilities of foundation trustees: 1) recognize that they serve a public trust,
2) plan a program or programs of philanthropy, 3) make hard choices among public needs, 4) diversify board membership and broaden outlook, 5) plan for continuity and renewal of board, 6) organize for effective operation, 7) make the foundation accessible, 8) be familiar with and to fulfill all legal requirements, and 9) give public accounting of activities.
Nason revisits his recommendations in a subsequent analysis printed in 1989. This version, titled Foundation trusteeship: service in the public interest, is still available in print.
