    By far, the biggest benefit I received was in reading the chapte

    By far, the biggest benefit I received was in reading the chapter, "Events will Kill You." For some reason I find event planning to be very stressful and sometimes in the end it seems like the money you raise doesn't feel like it was worth the effort the organization put forth. Erik lays out some strategies for holding an event that gives your donors a great experience while maximizing the amount of money that goes to the organization. I also thought his points on how small non-profits need to be careful about bleeding calendar time and money at Donor Cultivation Events to be helpful.

    I'm on a couple of boards and committees for small organizations and associations in my town, and this book has helped me bring some different ideas and suggestions to the table when the topic turns to fundraising.

    The great thing about this book is that it keeps the focus on creating an organization from the ground up that is healthy and thriving with donations but still staying true to the cause.

    This book was well worth the time and money to read! I recommend it all the time to friends that are new to being on boards or just starting out as Executive Directors. To be honest, I find myself regularly referencing things I learned in Little Book of GOld in planning meetings and board meetings. I like to think it's made me a better volunteer!
