Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits: Real-world Strategies that Work

Front Cover
Getting tax-exempt status for your nonprofit organization is just the first step -- whether its mission will succeed depends entirely on your ability to raise money. Fortunately, Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits will show you how.
Featuring advice and stories from over 40 experienced fundraisers, foundation staffers, journalists and more, the 2nd edition of Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits explains how to:
work with individual donors
plan special events
solicit grants from foundations and corporations
get media coverage
use the Web to further fundraising goals
start a side business to raise funds
and much more
The 2nd edition also covers IRS rules and regulations, grassroots strategies for struggling nonprofits, the tools and staffing needed, and dozens of resources that you can take advantage of.
Best of all, Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits is written in plain English, cutting out the jargon and consultant speak that's all too common in many nonprofit books.
