Pros: Great guide to variety of options withing fundraising. Great & really helpful examples Sample forms included on CD. Cons: Doesn't provide an overall comprehensive plan to tie it all together "The Volunteers' Guide to Fundraising: Raise Money for Your School, Team, Library, or Community Group" is an excellent "pick and choose" book for nonprofits and similar groups who are looking for ways to get money while serving their community. It begins with a basic overview of fundraising and preparation for fundraising, then delves into the different strategies you can, ranging from auctions to scrip to special events. The strategies is where you will find the real " meat" in the text because the author provides ample examples of simple and concrete situations faced by groups that are the most likely to need this book. That is very helpful! If you need a fundraising idea, this is your book. The only downside is that the book doesn't provide an overall fundraising plan. A fundraising plan is started in the beginning of the book, but it is not fully complete. This is understandable since there are so many options and so situations that a fundraising group can face. Still, it would have been nice for the author to attempt. Still, a great book for any nonprofit's bookshelf. You could spend a whole lifetime using the examples and strategies for your nonprofit or group.
