This practical workbook will help you put in place the last component of a comprehensive development office -- an endowment program. Building Your Endowment gives development professionals, executive directors, consultants, and volunteers the information needed to understand and implement an endowment program that will get bottom-line results. Based on the philosophy and teachings of Henry R. Rosso -- founder of the Fund Raising School and the preeminent twentieth century fund raising educator -- Building Your Endowment is infused with Rosso's views, approaches, and perspectives on fund raising." "Building Your Endowment takes you step by step through the fund raising cycle and shows how to examine the case, define the objectives, involve volunteers, select fund raising vehicles, identify potential giving sources, prepare a fund raising plan, prepare a communications plan, and solicit and renew the gift. Written in workbook format, this practical resource contains a wealth of worksheets that help you apply the ideas and concepts to your nonprofit organization. Using these worksheets, your organization will be better prepared for the critical decision making and planning so essential to successful fund raising for endowment. In addition, this handy workbook is flexible enough to meet the needs of any nonprofit organization no matter what its mission or size. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET."
