This book describes in detail campaigning fundraising as it should be, how it should be structured, implemented and explained so that our publics, particularly donors and fundraisers themselves, see it as the positive, transformational force for change and good that it surely can be, and as the best career going for any creative, committed individual who really wants to make a difference, to change the world.
‘The links and exhibits contained here transformed the way I do my work as a fundraising copywriter (and continue to do so). May they likewise transform the work you do to make this world a better place by giving your donors the chance to be the generous, compassionate, caring people they are.’
Lisa Sargent, campaigning fundraising copywriter, USA.
‘Thank goodness I got to the letterbox before the dog did yesterday, because this treasurebox was waiting for me on the doormat...This book takes a step forward.’
