“David Lansdowne has achieved the near-impossible. He has transformed a classic work that’s guided tens of thousands of board members and made it better – significantly better.”
Without wasting a word, Lansdowne distills the essence of big-gifts fundraising into 43 “realities,” and explains each principle and technique in a way board members will understand immediately.
Put this classic in your board’s hands, in their orientation packet, in their annual meeting folder, in their workshop handouts. Put it anywhere you need the art of fundraising illuminated in a masterful, uncomplicated, and engaging way.
