Doing Good Well - new book

A strategic, conceptual and highly readable book Willie has done a masterful job keeping the content fresh and intriguing and even infuses the book with his unique of humor. His ideas are thought provoking and accessible. William D. Green Chairman & CEO, Accenture Willie's provocative perspective on the donor, donor motivations, regulation, compensation, the rich/poor divide and social enterprises to name just a few, is enlightening and refreshing. He reminds the reader of the philosophy of Andrew Carnegie and combines this ageless wisdom with his own thoughts and experiences. At the same time, he peppers his book with interesting research from toilet NGOs to quirky quotes from his penchant for comics. You will enjoy this book immensely! Paulette V. Maehara President and CEO, Association of Fundraising Professionals A must-read for anybody who wants to understand philanthropy and nonprofits in Asia and beyond. Dr. Maximilian Martin Global Head, Philanthropy Services, UBS AG Willie's book may be viewed as "Charity 101." It inspires charities to do better. However, on another and more important level, it challenges the reader with uncommon thinking on nonprofit paradigms. Whether or not you agree with some of his radical thinking, we should take our hats off to Willie for living his values and not following the herd with "easy" answers. This book will change the way charities think, work and live. Fang Ai Lian Chairman, Charity Council Willie's writings have stirred, provoked and moved the charity scene in Singapore. He has a way of putting things within a framework, connecting seemingly unrelated dots in his attempt to make sense of all that is going on in and around the sector here and elsewhere. That is what the nonprofit sector critically needs at this juncture more than evercritical thinking around critical issues beyond the doing. Tan Chee Koon Former CEO, National Volunteer & Philanthropy Center An amazing amount of research and ideas fused together. In a sense, this is the The Undercover Economist of the charity world. It provides the most complete and insightful account I have seen of what happened at the National Kidney Foundation. This should be a textbook for anyone who wants to better understand why charities work or don't. Gerard Ee Chairman, The New NKF (National Kidney Foundation) Business Business eBook, Wiley

Doing Good Well: What Does (and Does Not) Make Sense in the Nonprofit World - used book

ISBN: 9780470823897

ID: 1534320

Why does a deserving charity struggle to make ends meet while another which squanders money, thrive? "Because there is a structural disconnect between revenue and expenses in the nonprofit world." Is continuous growth the hallmark of a successful charity? "No, it's just the opposite - the ultimate aim of a charity is to be extinct." Would you use volunteers if it actually cost more than hiring paid skilled staff? "Yes, if engagement with the community is crucial." Call these examples, ironies, paradoxes or simply insights into why the charity sector is what it is. "Doing Good Well" is a thinking man's guide to the nonprofit world. It is replete with nonprofit paradigms. It provides a different twist to what one might regard as straightforward notions such as mission, staff compensation, governance and corporate social responsibility. And it surprises and challenges even as it seeks to explain charity-specific issues such as charitableness, bridging the rich/poor divide, informed giving and social entrepreneurship. And as he deconstructs existing paradigms, Willie Cheng creates new ones. Through an easy writing style, hearty anecdotes and thought-provoking perspectives, Cheng engages the readers with a strategic review of not just the status quo but also the enormous potential in the nonprofit world. The theme of the book is change. Inasmuch as charities are about changing society for the better, this book seeks to set the stage for interesting introspection. Whether you are a volunteer, business executive, nonprofit worker, governor or regulator, it's time to start asking the questions that would help the charity sector itself change for the better. In Cheng's words, charity is no longer simply about "Just Doing Good" but "Doing Good Well."
