Ending Book Hunger Access to Print Across Barriers of Class and Culture

Ending Book Hunger Access to Print Across Barriers of Class and Culture

Author: Lea Shaver Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/02/2020

An eye-opening exploration of book hunger -the unmet need for books in underserved communities-and efforts to universalize access to print Worldwide, billions of people suffer from book hunger. For them, books are too few, too expensive, or do not even exist in their languages. Lea Shaver argues that this is an educational crisis: the most reliable predictor of children's achievement is the size of their families' book collections. This book highlights innovative nonprofit solutions to expand access to print. First Book, for example, offers diverse books to teachers at bargain prices. Imagination Library mails picture books to support early literacy in book deserts. Worldreader promotes mobile reading in developing countries by turning phones into digital libraries. Pratham Books creates open access stories that anyone may freely copy, adapt, and translate. Can such efforts expand to bring books to the next billion would-be readers? Shaver reveals the powerful roles of copyright law and licensing, and sounds the clarion call for readers to contribute their own talents to the fight against book hunger.

Financing Nonprofit Organizations

Financing Nonprofit Organizations

Author: Inigo Garcia-Rodriguez Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/01/2020

The financial issues of nonprofit organizations (NPOs) have increased their importance in recent years, especially after the last global economic downturn. In this way, NPOs have been threatened by a reduction of income, while their work and expenses have not decreased. In this book, the editors bring together several topics that the academic literature has previously addressed, connecting them to each other and evaluating how all these issues are interrelated. Financing Nonprofit Organizations analyses the state of art of all these financial topics and the consequences of the last economic crisis. It dives into the interrelations of these concepts to suggest lines of future research and to reflect on the future of the different sources of funding of the NPOs. It will be of interest to students, practitioners, and researchers interested in initiating and updating their knowledge in the growing field of the financial aspects of the NPOs.

Museum Marketization Cultural Institutions in the Neoliberal Era

Museum Marketization Cultural Institutions in the Neoliberal Era

Author: Karin M (University of Boras, Sweden) Ekstroem Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/12/2019

This wide-ranging book explores the impact of marketisation on the creative industries. With critical perspectives from a variety of disciplines and global experts, numerous examples from international cultural institutions are employed to illuminate the topic. Culture and business have become increasingly intertwined and cultural institutions need to be aware of their place in the market. Commercial awareness which was previously disparaged is now seen as a legitimate and necessary response to increased competition, enhancing experience, increasing accessibility, broadening inclusivity and sustainable futures with diminishing funding. The contributions to this book highlight that marketing, public relations, sponsorship and fund raising have become integral to the survival of many museums and galleries, festivals and events. Of interest to students and scholars across topics such as arts marketing, arts administration, heritage marketing, and museum studies, the book is also insightful for reflective practitioners in the creative sector.

Once activated, you will gain immediate online access to the product. Frequently Asked Questions Do I have to be a CPA to get the certificate? You do not have to be a CPA to obtain the certificate. The certificate is designed to benefit CPAs and non-CPA alike, including anyone who works for, or with, a nonprofit. Those who obtain the certificate will receive the recommended CPE / CAE credits. What level of knowledge should I possess prior to starting the NFP Certificate program? While the program is designed to provide a foundational level of learning, individuals will benefit from having a basic understanding and awareness of financial reporting, auditing, governance and tax terminology and practices. How is the course material presented? Designed to be highly interactive, this program offers multiple opportunities for learning, including case study analysis and several gaming scenarios. Participants will be offered the opportunity to apply their new NFP knowledge in a simulated real-world environment. Tests are presented after each course to allow you to apply what you just learned. There are no additional tests at the end of tracks or when you've completed the certificate. How long will it take me to complete? This varies from individual to individual and is completely dependent upon the time the participant allocates to completing the coursework. A commitment of approximately 40 hours will be required for most individuals to successfully complete the program. What period of time do I have to complete the program? You have twenty-four (24) months from the date of purchase to complete all the courses. You are encouraged to complete the program within a twelve (12) month period or less. Can I complete the program in any order? Yes, there are no limitations on the order in which you take the courses. When will I receive a hard copy of my certificate? You will receive your certificate in the mail 6-8 weeks after completing the program. Once I complete the program and obtain my Certificate, how long is it valid? The NFP Certificate is not a professional credential or license, it is evidence that the program was successfully completed as of a certain year, therefore it does not expire. However, we anticipate that some individual courses may be updated every 1-3 years to reflect changes in the industry. For your certificate to remain current, you will need to successfully complete those updated courses. However, updates are likely to be at a fraction of the cost of the original certificate. Plus, you have access to the program for 24 months from purchase, if the courses are updated during that period, you will have access to the updated courses at no additional cost. Completion of these updated courses will earn a new Certificate, with the current year's date. Is there any cost savings in purchasing the entire certificate over buying tracks individually? Yes, the more courses you buy, the less you pay per course. For instance, a member who buys the certificate will save approximately $150 over someone who buys the tracks individually, and approximately $400 over someone who buys all the courses individually. If I were to purchase one course or track, and then decided to purchase the entire certificate, will I still get the full bundled price savings? Yes, as long as you haven't already paid more than the full certificate price. The price you paid for the courses or tracks you have already taken will be deducted from the total certificate price. If I am unable to complete the entire NFP Certificate Program, will I receive CPE credit for the courses I do complete? You are not required to complete the entire program to earn CPE credit. The courses are offered individually, so you will earn CPE credit for each course you take and successfully complete the exam. However, you must successfully complete the exam for all courses in the entire program in order to receive the NFP Certificate. Am I required to obtain a certain number of CPE credits annually for the Certificate to remain current and active? There are no specific annual requirements for maintaining your Certificate. However, we anticipate that some individual courses may be updated every 1-3 years to reflect changes in the industry. For your certificate to remain current, you will need to successfully complete those updated courses. However, updates are likely to be at a fraction of the cost of the original certificate. Plus, you have access to the program for 24 months from purchase, if the courses are updated during the access period, you will have access to the updated courses at no additional cost. I have prior experience working with NFPs. Will I be allowed to test out of certain courses while still earning the certificate? Actual completion of the courses is required to earn the NFP Certificate. CPE credit is being awarded for the courses, and the CPE standards do not allow for testing out of a course as a way to earn credit. System Requirements AICPA's online CPE courses will operate in a variety of configurations, but only the configuration described below is supported by AICPA technicians. A stable and continuous internet connection is required. In order to record your completion of the online learning courses, please ensure you are connected to the internet at all times while taking the course.

Handbook on Corporate Foundation Corporate and Civil Society Perspectives

Handbook on Corporate Foundation Corporate and Civil Society Perspectives

Author: Lonneke Roza Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/10/2019

Companies increasingly play a meaningful role in civil society and the philanthropic sector through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Philanthropy (CP). The most well studied form of allocating these resources is through outright contributions to operating external foundations and other nonprofit organizations. However, far less is known about the use of corporate foundations, separate and independent nonprofit entities aimed at channeling corporate giving to a social mission related to a company. Corporate foundations are often linked to the founding company through their name, funding, trustees, administration and potential employee involvement. As these foundations are growing in number, size and importance and becoming increasingly visible in the philanthropic sector, the urgency to understand their role and functioning becomes more important. The primary aim of this volume is to deliver a holistic analysis of the current state-of-the-art on corporate foundations. For that reason, the book includes different perspectives on and use a hybrid concept of corporate foundations. The book includes three main parts. First, looking further into the organizational processes of corporate foundations, the book analyzes governance and operations as major aspects of organizational performance. Second, it sheds light on the role of corporate foundations in various institutional settings. Lastly, the book includes various stakeholder perspectives on corporate foundations, including corporate employees, beneficiaries, and their non-profit partners. By reading the book, readers will build a comprehensive understanding of the role and functioning of corporate foundations, understand new avenues for research and, in case they are practitioners in the field, find practical advice rooted in academic research.
