Fundraising is about people; not about money

Whether you're a novice volunteer, board member or professional fundraiser, you face the daunting challenge of meeting fundraising goals and no amount of passion, energy or hard work can replace the fact that money is needed to fuel your organization's growth. So how do you raise money to expand your organization?

This book is for anyone whose initial reaction when confronted with the task of raising money for their charitable passion is a mixture of anxiety and bewilderment. With a straightforward and accessible approach, Eight Principles walks the reader through eight steps that help reshape their fundraising approach and processes. Eight Principles empowers fundraisers, both volunteer and professional alike, to see donors as people like themselves who want to invest in a worthwhile cause or organization.

Using real-life case studies from the author's extensive experience, along with an original assessment tool, Eight Principles shows charitable organizations where they are with respect to fundraising and how to get to where they want to be. With candid and engaging narrative, Eight Principles stresses the relational aspect of philanthropy and, in doing so, provides the keys to transforming fundraising anxiety into effective nonprofit leadership and fundraising success.

By applying theses Eight Principles, nonprofits can make real changes now that will permanently affect their fundraising futures to ensure success in the long term.
