A practical guide for non-profit organizations engaged in fundraising.

Abstract:  Development Today is a practical guide for non-profit organizations engaged in fundraising: in other words, practically all non-profits! A well-organized resource that looks at the planning process, the people and structures needed for a successful campaign, and the written materials required. Many of the major types of fundraising are looked at separately: foundation fundraising, special events, direct mail, and capital campaigns. Perhaps the most useful part of the book is the Samples Section, which features sample letters and documents for almost every fundraising need. These samples, which put the theory into practice, have the potential to save a lot of time even for those who are already experienced practitioners of the art of fundraising.
