Ever since I started in fundraising, people have asked me if I could teach them. For most of the first decade, I’d say I couldn’t. And I thought it was true.
I started teaching fundraising seminars at a local community college and found out people really “caught” what I taught.
So those classes, experiences with my fundraising coaching clients, and ongoing feedback from nonprofit leaders I’ve helped led me to write a book on ideas for effective fundraising. But rather than right it to people like me, I wrote it for board members of nonprofits. That way the organizations would grow alot stronger.
The book is called Ask Without Fear! a simple guide to connecting donors with what matters to them most.. I worked really hard to keep it easy to read and less than 100 pages.
It’s incredibly gratifying to see it helping people all over the world–literally!
