Mellon Financial Corporation Nonprofit Guide

The Mellon Financial Corporation is offering “Discover Total Resources: A Guide for Nonprofits,” a guide to help board members, staff, and volunteers discover resources that have been used effectively by a variety of nonprofits. The guide goes beyond “checkbook philanthropy” to the concept of total community resources by shifting from the traditional emphasis on volunteers, corporations, and foundations to focus on people, money, goods, and services. A checklist of resources and techniques is included to help nonprofits reduce their vulnerability and increase their opportunities.
