Help! They Want Me to Fundraise! a Nonprofit Fundraising Manual for Beginners
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
ON ORDER - Help! They Want Me to Fundraise! is for anyone new to fundraising. Perhaps you serve as a board member or other volunteer of a nonprofit that needs to raise money. Or maybe you're employed as the new development director or even as the executive director. It’s even possible that you worked with another organization in the past that raised money but you weren’t the one in charge. Now someone has asked you to step up to the plate and you’re not sure what this is going to require—or even if your organization is ready.
