    1. I picked up this book because I had no where else to go I needed a rapid fire approach to learning fundraising, and this jumped out at me I learned a lot from the first few chapters, especially w r t donor relations However, a lot of the chapters didn t apply to me This book should be read as a reference book as opposed to straight through I listened to the audiobook, which may have been part of it.


    2. Written in friendly, easy to read language, this book is full of sensible advice and usable worksheets.So far, Bray is really writing for larger organizations Directors of super small non profits with multi tasking staff will have to adapt her advice to suit their circumstances.She has good ideas about planning and budgeting, being good to your volunteers and donors, and being constantly ready with a quick and snappy persuasive description of your non profit s work and value Good reminders to ge [...]


    3. This is a great book for Executive and Development Directors of small nonprofits with little experience in fundraising return return This book is professional and easy to read It is clearly organized with detailed instructions, worksheets, quick tips, and real life examples It even has a good index so you can quickly find the advice you need return return The chapters cover fundraising tools, planning, attracting and keeping donors, major donors, legacies, special events, sales activities, grant [...]


    4. My start towards global domination started with my local PTO After getting myself elected co president, I was disappointed to find out that a big chunk of the job is fundraising and not unfettered power When NOLO press offered me a copy of Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits for review, I grabbed a copy to help me figure out what to do Ilona Bray diligently takes you through the fundamentals of establishing a fundraising program, how to attract donations and how to keep donors giving There is s [...]


    5. May see a theme for the books I am reading right now This is an accessible and useful guide for fundraising It is a great primer that covers most fundraising opportunities I am trying to make it a must read for all of my colleagues that work with non profits.It dedicates some significant time to different strategies, so if you do not plan to do some things, like planning major events, then not all of the content completely relevant The additional content can be interesting for additional ideas, [...]


    6. Although I haven t read any other fundraising textbooks, I would rate this one as excellent Bray writes in an appealing and interesting style, and she shares fundraising best practices with lots of good tips, resources, and real life examples I can see myself referring to this book again or rereading a chapter again before I tackle an assigned fundraising task as a volunteer or nonprofit staffer.


    7. My only problem with this book was that the real life examples got a bit annoying I m not looking for narrative, just information But some people might find that makes the material engaging.


    8. Good basic overview of what goes on for Fundraisers Not being one myself but working with a lot of fundraisers it gave me a good idea of where they are coming from, what are considered best practices and was able to figure out how it relates to my work with non profits.


    9. Good starter I think the section on email campaigns was surprisingly short, was hoping for concrete advice I think this is best read by total newcomers and people who are starting their own NGO and need to remind themselves of the full array of types of giving.


    10. I liked the breakdown on the different vehicles that could be used Some of the information legally has to be taken at face value as it depends on geography But a great toe dipper.
