About the Book

"What if nonprofits could avoid crises and devote more resources to the causes they want to advance? What if instead of being merely reactive, nonprofits could be proactive-confronting issues with radical candor, then taking reasonable steps to address their most important challenges? What if nonprofits could create virtuous cycles of action, leading team members to think like owners and strive for continuous improvement? What if, instead of being fragile (susceptible to reversals) or merely robust (strong, but unyielding), nonprofits could actually become resilient: able to bounce back from challenges and spring forward to create and take advantage of opportunities? I have spent decades exploring these questions. I have trained hundreds of nonprofits and gathered data every step of the way. This book is the result of those efforts"--

Book Synopsis

A hands-on risk management playbook for nonprofit leaders, funders, and advisors

In Managing Your Nonprofit for Resilience: Use Lean Risk Management to Improve Performance and Increase Engagement, experienced nonprofit risk management expert Ted Bilich delivers a comprehensive and engaging exploration of how to keep your nonprofit vibrant, proactive, and out of trouble. In the book, you'll learn how the world's best charitable organizations employ lean risk management to prioritize, mitigate, and eliminate the most significant risks facing nonprofits today.

The author teaches you how to develop a risk management cycle and work with risks at the board level, implementing lean risk management tactics incrementally. You'll also discover:

  • Discussions of fundamental risk management elements
  • Sample compliance checklists, example questions to ask during risk inventories, and common challenges faced by nonprofits in a wide variety of sectors
  • Strategies for confronting nascent risk and issues with radical candor and taking reasonable steps to address them before they spiral out of control

An engaging and essential resource for the managers and directors of nonprofits of all sizes, Managing Your Nonprofit for Resilience belongs on the bookshelves of anyone tasked with shepherding a charitable organization through an increasingly challenging and volatile environment.

From the Back Cover


"Running a nonprofit can be exhilarating, messy and sometimes overwhelming. This well-researched book demystifies the practice of lean risk management. The clear approach allows you to gain an understanding of how simple risk management techniques will move you and your team from reactive to proactive, worried to confident, and make your strategic plan achievable. You and your team can use the provided templates and idea cues to identify the threats and opportunities your nonprofit faces in every functional area of your nonprofit. Ted Bilich makes a compelling case that managing risks acts as an accelerant to achieving your strategic plan and ultimately your mission."
--Linda Lenrow Lopez, Enterprise Risk Management Principal, Wikimedia Foundation

"Ted hits the mark of 21st century 'duty of care' thinking for nonprofit leaders! This dynamic, holistic approach for nonprofits embracing risk through a careful process, a path, a journey with calculated milestones is practical, engaging and sustainable."
--Peter A. Persuitti, Global Managing Director--Nonprofit Practice, Gallagher

"Ted Bilich has written the ultimate guide for nonprofits to build their resilience and bounce back from difficult situations and embrace new opportunities, something the nonprofit sector desperately needs at this moment. A must-read for every nonprofit leader."
--Beth Kanter, Author, Facilitator, and Trainer

"Ted's book is a must-read for any nonprofit executive or board member, whether veteran or newbie. In uncommonly plain English, Ted dismantles key risk management concepts and makes them accessible and practicable. This primer provides inspiration to those caught in 'analysis paralysis' or who've considered enterprise-wide risk management too daunting a prospect for resource-challenged persons or organizations. Commercial insurers will love applicants that embrace Ted's methods."
--Scott R. Konrad, North American Nonprofit Practice Leader, HUB International Limited

"Great pragmatic resource for nonprofit professionals, board members, donors and volunteers. Applicable to organizations at any stage of their evolution, from newly formed to well established."
--Dr. Jan Young, Executive Director, Assisi Foundation of Memphis, Inc.

"Tackling risk management is critical to the success of nonprofits. Ted's book provides a roadmap for this effort, and more importantly provides readers with confidence that they will succeed at anticipating, mitigating and managing risk."
--Jenny Palazio, Senior Director of a Global Nonprofit
