We all need some inspiration ...

The aim of this resource page is to help you be inspired and to learn from others. 

It is by no means exhaustive but we’ll aim to add resources regularly. Of course, if you come across something really great, share it with us and we’ll add it to this page.

Here’s the library of books I have read or plan to read. You can also look at a great resource created by some of my nerdy friends: The Nonprofit Bookshelf.
