Engine of Impact is an essential handbook for every aspiring social sector leader and philanthropist… Creating social impact is an art and a science, requiring investments of heart and mind. Meehan and Jonker’s outstanding analysis combines the intense rigor of business strategy with the critical soft skills of courage and creativity to equip us with the toolkit necessary for transformative social change.”

– Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen, Founder, laaf.org, Author, Giving 2.0, Founder and Chair, Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society

“No one knows the not-for-profit sector and its most effective leaders better than Meehan and Jonker. Their book is a master class on what it takes to drive meaningful impact. In tackling the fundamental questions—strategy and focus, discipline and accountability—the authors get to the heart of what every mission-focused leader needs to understand. Engine of Impact is a book to read and re-read—the definitive guide for all who aspire to lead high-performing and high-achieving organizations.”

– Sally Osberg, President and CEO, Skoll Foundation, and co-Author, Getting Beyond Better
