The time is ripe for nonprofits to reinvent and re-examine their partnerships with businesses. Korngold gives nonprofits step-by-step guidelines on how to leverage the vast resources businesses can bring to their organizations to increase their effectiveness. The nonprofit sector has been rocked by scandals and controversies, particularly surrounding giving after 9/11, from which it has never fully recovered. The press and public sector have raised doubts about nonprofit accountability, which forces nonprofits to focus more on governance and to seek board members who are serious about how the nonprofit accomplishes its mission.
