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".
