Call for Chapter Proposals for the book titled Sagamore Nonprofit Studies Series:  Nonprofit Financial Management

The editors of the Sagamore Nonprofit Studies Series invite chapter proposals from scholars and instructors in the field of nonprofit financial management.  The vision for this book is that it would be used in graduate and undergraduate courses introducing students to nonprofit financial management.  It is designed specifically for 7- & 8-week online courses but could be used in courses of longer duration or those that are face-to-face.  Each completed full chapter will be sent out for blind review to two peer reviewers.  The book will be available in print and electronic forms to give students and instructors their preferred choice. The book is included as part of the new Sagamore Nonprofit Studies Series edited by Norman A. Dolch, Heather Carpenter, Roseanne Mirabella, and Helen Wise, all of whom are recognized as nonprofit scholars with considerable teaching experience, particularly in online courses.  As such, they will bring to the project extensive knowledge of nonprofit education.  For this book on Nonprofit Financial Management, Heather Carpenter and Crystal Evans will also serve as the book editors.


These are the chapter topics for the volume:

  • Financial theories and roles
  • Financial policies and internal controls
  • Budgeting and depreciation
  • Financial statements
  • Financial statement analysis
  • Cash flow and cost allocation
  • Investments and liabilities
  • 990s and audits
  • Other proposed topics

The proposed length for each chapter is about 20 pages double-spaced plus references.  The volume will allow students to apply nonprofit finance theory into real world settings.  The end of each chapter will be a numbered listing of major points covered in the chapter. Final drafts of chapters will be due in January 2020 and authors are encouraged to send sections and drafts to the editors as their writing progresses.


If you are interested in writing a chapter for this book, please develop a topical outline of the sections and subsections on one page and a brief discussion of the chapter in no more than 250 words.  Submit this by August 15 to Heather Carpenter and Crystal Evans
