Diversity in the fundraising profession
Jossey-Bass, Sep 27, 2002 - Business & Economics - 129 pages
Examining the distinctions of diversity from within the fundraising profession or exploring strategies to enhance diversity in the nonprofit sector, this volume participates in the ongoing discussion on the opportunities and obligations for fundraising practitioners to incorporate culture and tradition in their practice. Chapters examine prospect research, cultivation, and solicitation practice; communication strategies in the workplace; the importance of diversity in philanthropic boards; inclusiveness in the mission and work of nonprofit organizations; and the evolution of current gay and lesbian issues as well as the cultural sensitizing that needs to occur in order to develop successful donor relationships. Acknowledging the challenge for increased quantifiable data on diversity and promoting continued dialogue, this book is a valuable addition to the literature in the fundraising field.
This is the 34th issue of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Philanthropic Fundraising.
