    Help for Getting Your Fundraising Event Started

    I never thought using simple project management tools used in industry would fit in a fund raising event. Dealing with people is what fundraising and volunteering is all about. Using the proper tools as pointed out in this book in Seven simple steps will help every organization get organized. The author is right, every organization needs to have a copy on their shelves to reference when new chairperson's take over. It is stimulating and refreshing to know that so much can be done to help others.
