The governance of voluntary/non-profit organisations becomes increasingly important as organisations grow and develop. Although most organisations have governing boards, motivating and channelling them wisely is often a challenge. As the non-profit establishes itself and diversifies its operations and programs, the work of the board takes on new meaning. An engaged and deliberate board can make the difference between an organisation that is merely surviving from day to day and one that approaches the future with vision and determination.

The need for a handbook to understand the accounting function, especially with regard to voluntary/not-for-profit organizations in India, was felt for a long time.
Keeping proper accounts is not only a statutory requirement under the various laws affecting voluntary organizations, but also a requisite for enhancing credibility in the eyes of all stakeholders.

My involvement with various philanthropic institutions began with fund raising. In fact, I even owe my present involvement with the Centre for Advancement of Philanthropy (CAP) to fund raising. As Project Manager of a development institution in Mumbai, I had approached the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust for a grant to support a community project. In the process of securing the grant, I came in touch with Mr. R.M. Lala, Director of the Trust. In the year 1986 when he, along with other leading lights like the Late Mr. H.T. Parekh, Mr. R.R. Chari, Mr. D.M. Forbes and others, launched CAP, I was invited to join as its first Executive Secretary.

It gives me great pleasure to write the foreword to Noshir H. Dadrawala's new book, 'Merchants of Philanthropy'. On many occasions in the past, Noshir and I have discussed the necessity of having just such a book, the main objective being to inspire and motivate others in industry to develop into "Merchants of Philanthropy".

A welfare State is committed to the social, economic and intellectual betterment of its citizens. It sets up institutions, establishes organisations and facilitates all other endeavours in this direction. The entire range of social welfare becomes a prime responsibility of the State and its various establishments. The policies and plans meant for the benefit of all classes of citizens extend over social welfare, social defence, social reconstruction, social rehabilitation, social insurance and several other areas. The very complex character of the nature and dimensions of the processes, procedures and authorities necessary for the effective implementation of projects and schemes makes it a herculean task for the government as well as the implementing authority.

As a visiting scholar of The Cairns Institute, Professor Ilango Ponnuswami from Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, India had the opportunity in 2012 to work and collaborate with staff of Cairns Institute as well as social work academics of James Cook University(JCU) in North Queensland, Australia. These collaborations led to recognition that many of the challenges and dilemmas of scientific writing and publicationwere relevant to both the Indian and Australian contexts and that a meaningful cross-national collaboration would potentially enrich the learning experiences of students and staff in both locations. Subsequently the editors of this book, Professor Ponnuswami, and Dr Francis and Dr Harris from JCU, conducted a three day residential Scientific Writing and Publication Workshop (in January 2013), for social work faculty members and research scholars, at the Karl Kubel Institute of Development Education (KKID) in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. This book is a tangible outcome of this international, academic collaboration and, most importantly, is the result of the KKID participants’ scientific writing endeavors begunat the 2013 workshop in Coimbatore.
