leap-of-reasonVenture Philanthropy Partners Chairman Mario Morino, McKinsey & Company, and a host of notable nonprofit leaders have collaborated on a book that is inspiring leaders to take bold action to create more meaningful, measurable good for those they serve. Leap of Reason: Managing to Outcomes in an Era of Scarcity has caught fire among readers in the nonprofit and public sectors and is being used to inform board meetings, strategic-planning sessions, performance-management projects, professional-development curricula, and graduate/undergraduate classes. The book is now in its fourth printing, with more than 46,000 copies in circulation.Morino and his co-authors make a compelling case that America must make two dramatic shifts:

  • We must demand—and support—high performance from organizations that provide social, educational, and health services to children and families.
  • We must demand public and private funding decisions based on merit and reason, not stirring stories or blind faith.
