Charities in Britain contribute over £40 billion to the economy. More than a million people serve as trustees in a wide range of not-for-profit organisations. Yet there are almost no books to help them perform this important task.
In this book, the author brings a fresh perspective to the role of trustee. He provides a range of practical advice to help and guide you to become a successful and confident trustee, including tips on developing strategy, handling governance issues, forming good communications and ensuring you are informed about what is happening within the charity. There are chapters on finance and on handling fraud.
Written in a jargon-free style, it should become the go-to book for those who want to put their skills to use serving as a trustee in a not-for-profit organisation.
