Going Global for the Greater Good offers a unique look at the way  nonprofits—of any size—can increase their impact and better achieve their missions by engaging in the international community. Nonprofits that see themselves as part of a global community can provide a broader reach for programs, enhance the diversity of their organizations, raise their organizations’ profiles, and benefit from the ideas and experience of the global nonprofit community. But few organizations know how to take their place at the international table, and many smaller organizations don’t know whether it is realistic for them to try. This practical, user-friendly guide helps locally based organizations find connections in the ever-expanding global arena of ideas.
