Fundraising for Non-Profits May 6, 2008
A good basic book for non profits. Not a lot of specific how-to's, but good principles to follow. Definitely a good read for people new to the business of fund raising. Read this one along with several other books on the subject for a broader view and more "how-to's".
Helpful resource guide Dec 6, 2004
As someone who is involved in helping nonprofits do fundraising, I think Keegan's book is a fairly helpful resource. Most successful was its straightforward tips on how to involve the community-at-large in a nonprofit campaign.
This book is awesome! Sep 6, 2000
Most of the nonprofit "help" books are very dry, but this one is very readable. The information is extremely helpful and directly addresses the difficulties that we have to overcome in fundraising, particularly the "I hate to ask people for money" syndrome. I love that in places, the author says, "here is the attitude you may have.. but... get over it!" and then proceeds to tell you how TO approach things with humor and good advice. If you do fundraising or work with a group that does fundraising, you will find great information and ideas in this book!
Best fundraising book on the market Sep 11, 1998
A thoughtful, humorous account of the world of grassroots fundraising. The author brings her experience, warmth and humor to this very important book on fundraising. It is an excellent tool for non profit agencies. I recommend it for any non-profit agency staff member or volunteer board member that wants to break out of the fundraising doldrums into fundraising excellence.
