A must-read for nonprofit leaders, executives, board leaders, and philanthropists.
Written by Bancroft CEO Toni Pergolin, Too Important to Fail: Leadership Lessons for Nonprofits is the roadmap on how to approach, plan and execute the turnaround of a nonprofit organization.
Pergolin brings her business and leadership principles to the fore and details how they must be applied to a nonprofit organization’s financial management for long-term success. While sharing her first-hand experience with Bancroft – a New Jersey-based nonprofit providing programs and services for children and adults with disabilities with clinical excellence and compassion – in Too Important to Fail, Pergolin also tells a powerful and emotional real-life story that showcases the extreme challenges nonprofit leaders face, and the sheer will necessary to change the current dynamic of the nonprofit world.
