Simple the best book anywhere on the subject the Joy of Cooking of fundraising. From the most micro topics, like what a raffle ticket should say and phone banking scripts to the most macro like creating an organizational budget and when and how to hire a development director, she covers the waterfront. Based on extensive experience from her long career in the field, Klein knows how to make fundraising both rewarding and fun - not necessarily in that order. It costs about forty bucks and - if you open it and use it - will pay for itself in no time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
