Building Profitable Relationships That Last (Third Edition, 2011)
Strategic Fund Development became an instant classic the day the first edition was released. Now in this expanded 3rd edition, it has been revised cover-to-cover with relevant new information and useful new tools and resources.
This updated classic provides essential insights and tools – with an extra bonus: Purchasers get exclusive access to a website of tools and resources.
But the unsuspected virtue of this “fundraising” book is its in-depth analysis about what makes organizations effective – things like leadership, organizational culture, decision-making processes, systems thinking, and well-managed change. Add in the comprehensive guide to strategic planning (including detailed steps, sample research tools, retreat agendas, and complete plans) – and you’ve got an irreplaceable tool to build a stronger organization. Another section of the book includes the same detail and resources for fundraising planning.
This bestselling book is about so much more than just fundraising. The new edition expands its well-rounded guidance, with:
Fund development job descriptions, tips on how to write better, sample strategic plans, sample fund development plans, governance self-assessment survey, donor and customer satisfaction surveys, focus group questions, hundreds of hands-on tips and checklists that you can adapt and use for your organization.
