Real-world solutions to take any fundraising program from good to great.

The nonprofit sector is facing major fundraising challenges. Government cutbacks, shrinking endowments, and business belt-tightening mean revenue shortfalls that could prevent organizations from fulfilling their missions. To survive and ultimately thrive, a nonprofit needs forceful revenue strategies and an organizational culture that champions them.

Bridging the gap between theory and practical methods, The Nonprofit Fundraising Solution shows readers how to:

• Ensure that executive leadership and board dynamics fully support fundraising initiatives

• Build a broad constituency of donors aligned to the mission

• Determine the right level of funding diversification

• Use tactics such as challenge drives, stretch gifts, and corporate matching; parlor gatherings; leadership councils; year-end drives; corporate partnerships; and major campaigns to power revenue, increase access to wealthy donors, and raise their community profile

• Proactively encourage planned giving

• Avoid revenue plateaus

Full of real-life stories and “casebooks” of the strategies-in-action, this book reveals how any nonprofit can implement advanced fundraising methods and secure the funds they need to excel.
