“It’s one of those foundational books that only comes along every so often. It might even make a nice gift for someone.” So says Denver Frederick, host of the “Business of Giving” podcast, during his recent interview with Bill Meehan and Kim Jonker about their book, Engine of Impact. The podcast covers the challenge of focusing on organizational mission, the ins and outs of nonprofit board governance, and what it takes for an organization to “earn the right” to scale.
