Shared Services Guide

Illuminating innovative ways nonprofits can do more with less, Shared Services is the first comprehensive guide for nonprofit executives looking to create shared services programs.

Filled with step-by-step guidelines, case studies and sample documents, Shared Services draws from the experiences of people across the nonprofit and philanthropic world to help you build your own successful shared services program.

Co-authors Jackie Cefola of TSNE’s NonProfit Center, China Brotsky of Tides and Roxanne Hanson of the Nonprofit Centers Network have created this guide based on interviews with executives of shared services programs and knowledge we gathered through field research across the United States and Canada. From simple equipment sharing to complex multi-service operations, this guide provides the roadmap to create a successful program.
