Summer 2006

The future of philanthropy depends on strong leadership, but the sector is facing a leadership deficit of 640,000 in the next decade. Stanford Social Innovation Review’s summer 2006 issue offers up a set of articles focused on the future of nonprofit leadership. Increasingly, nonprofit leaders will come from a wide range of groups, including business, the military, and retirees. But there are unique difficulties and benefits to meeting the leadership deficit with those who come from a for-profit background, who may underestimate the unique challenges of nonprofit leadership.
