A Good Foundation

October, 2004

Joseph Phelan’s new book, A Dynamic Foundation for Fund Raising, (CASE) explains how a nonprofit institution can establish a foundation to raise, manage and administer financial and other gifts on its behalf. According to the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), more than 4,000 foundations now serve educational institutions, museums and a wide variety of other nonprofit entities. The book provides detailed instructions and practices about the foundation organizing process. Phelan has spent his career serving America’s nonprofit community. He received the 2003 CASE Commonfund Institutionally Related Foundation Service Award. Phelan teaches in Plymouth State University’s English department.—MLS
