Great starting point
This book is a VERY basic and quick read. As an intern for a nonprofit with 0 experience in developing fundraising strategies — this book was perfect for anchoring a cohesive outline into my brain. I had a mess of google docs and research piling up and so I decided to shop for a book that could help streamline my tasks so I wasn’t reinventing the wheel.
It won’t tell you the perfect strategy for YOUR organization - this short book ends with a generic fundraising plan that will certainly guide a more creative, innovative, unique plan. It is up to the reader to do their research and figure out the details of their organization and the organization’s needs, as well as external factors, in order to plug the specifics into the generic guide, and lead to the development of a strategic plan.
For the few bucks I spent, I would say it was worth it. The book re-affirmed my intuitions and suspicions on certain fundraising aspects, so I feel more confident that I was not completely lost in my tasks. Before going into 100 conflicting directions as I usually do, the book narrowed the path of my unique strategy. Best of all, I saved time and even felt inspired.
This book was a good introduction to fundraising for a new organization.
Easy read with many tips and tricks about the topic of non profit fundraising. I will use all this for launching and running our non profit School for industry training.
