The Fundraising Habits of Supremely Successful Boards
A 59-Minute Guide to Assuring Your Organization's Future
by Jerold Panas, 106 pp.
Jerry Panas has counseled more than 3,000 nonprofit boards. He knows EXACTLY what a board must do to raise money. In his book, The Fundraising Habits of Supremely Successful Boards, Jerry identifies 25 habits that are essential to raising big gifts.
This isn’t guesswork. It isn’t theory. This is Jerry’s hard-won experience and observation over a 40-year career. The more habits your board adopts the larger the payoff. And, fortunately, these fundraising habits are easy to adopt. In many cases, it’s simply a matter of shifting your perspective. When you do, the “Aha” moments come fast and furious.
Without a doubt, your board will take to this 1-hour book. Why? Because it’s short, it’s entertaining, and because Jerry inspires like no one else in philanthropy. It’s said that good habits, once established, are as hard to break as bad habits. That bodes well for your board and your next campaign.
