Maximize your fundraising efforts and get the support you need

In this current era of increased financial cutbacks, smaller donations, and reduced government spending, competition for individual, corporate, and foundation support for nonprofits is fiercer than ever. In order to survive, you and your organization must put aside common but self-defeating misconceptions, establish clear goals, and implement techniques guaranteed to put you ahead of the pack.

You'll find sound, effective strategies and insider tips for cultivating potential donors, building a powerful case for your drive, soliciting large gifts, obtaining foundation grants, creating direct mail packages, and implementing high-profile, imaginative campaigns that top consultants use to get results. Edles reveals the six requirements that successful drives can't do without, the most (and least) powerful ways to ask for funds, the crucial steps to follow before a campaign goes public, and advice on training and energizing your volunteer force, and cutting costs.

  • Using advances in technology and e-campaigning techniques to further your goals
  • How to market your campaign and build a communications plan
