Abstract:

"Essential Principles for Fundraising Success is a single-source, easy-access guide that offers answers to the most commonly asked questions posed by professional fundraisers and volunteers. Organized in a clear, easy-to-use question and answer format, Essential Principles for Fundraising Success takes on the challenges that arise daily in the ongoing, high-pressured business of raising money. In this book, G. Douglass Alexander and Kristina J. Carlson - the founders of the successful Internet-based fundraising consulting firm FundraisingINFO.com - offer insight from their combined forty-six years of experience working with thousands of nonprofit organizations.

Based on the enduring principles of fundraising, this important resource shows how to master the three mainstays of fundraising - developing a case statement, creating a campaign strategy, and securing big gifts. Essential Principles for Fundraising Success also offers creative, out-of-the-box solutions for convincing reluctant board members and other stakeholders to follow proven, effective fundraising strategies.".

"The book covers a wide range of topics including information about capital campaigns, working with boards and volunteers, annual fundraising, major gifts, planned giving, special events, and grant seeking. Essential Principles for Fundraising Success is filled with actual questions from fundraising professionals and practitioners and answers that demonstrate ways to apply sound fundraising principles in real-life situations and how to avoid common pitfalls. The authors include tools and techniques that you can use to educate others within your organization about all the elements of a successful fundraising program.".

"The insight found in Essential Principles for Fundraising Success will prove indispensable in the day-to-day job performance of novice and experienced fundraisers alike."--BOOK JACKET.
