"A comprehensive guide on how to start, grow and maintain an endowment. Diana also shows how to put theory into practice with numerous real-life examples and success stories."—Joe Bull Director of Planned Giving, The Ohio State University

"In this book, Diana points to the importance of an endowment for any type of nonprofit organization. It is for the beginner and the experienced person. After you read this book, you will not have to wake up in the middle of the night to wonder, am I missing something or am I doing something wrong, you will know what to do and how to do it. This book is a wonderful tool for new and emerging community foundations, I wish that a copy had been mine when I started in this field 25 years ago! The community foundation field concentrated on current giving rather than endowment building for several years, now many are coming back to realize the power of the endowment."—Kay M. Marquet, President/CEO, Community Foundation Sonoma County (Sonoma CA)
