How to Connect with Donors and Double the Money You Raise - eBook
[ Note: This book is available in eBook format ONLY.]
by Thomas Wolf, 109 pp.
Focus groups have shown that donors want two things:
1) An organization with integrity.
2) To be recognized as individuals, not numbers.
How to Connect with Donors and Double the Money You Raise can't help you with the first. Where author Thomas Wolf shines is with showing you how to engage donors in a multitude of ways that YOU will like and THEY will love. You already have donors. And they're willing to give more. But they bristle at being treated like movable pieces in a fundraising puzzle. Donors are clear about what they want. They're not coy. How to heed their wishes, and tap into their generosity, is Wolf's single-minded focus.
