The text consists of 15 chapters, with the 14 following the introductory chapter organized into three parts: (a) the practice; (b) the principles; and (c) the process, programs, and publics. To read chapter one in its entirety, click here

  • Part II: The Principles
  • Part III: The Process, Programs, and Publics
    Part I: The Practice:
    Parameters, Practitioners, and Professionalism This stage-setting chapter then turns to donor motivations, or the reasons beyond tradition for giving away money. The discussion resolves the two opposing viewpoints donors give money as an act of altruism and donors make gifts to advance their self-interests by adopting the mixed-motive model of giving. This model assumes that donors hold interest both in self and in a common good when making a gift. It further assumes that charitable organizations also have dual interests when obtaining gifts (i.e., their behavior is nether solely altruistic nor solely self-interested). Finally, special care is taken to identify those nonprofits likely to have a fund-raising function because a list of such organizations does not exist and previous work has not found it necessary to deal with this distinction. Stereotypes and misconceptions about charitable organizations are discussed, and statistics are recalculated to describe the dimensions of the approximately 150,000 organizations on which this book concentrates. Chapter 3 examines practitioners, or the people who are paid to raise money for these organizations. There are about 80,000 fund raisers in the United States, although only one third of them belong to the three major associations of AHP, CASE, and NSFRE. Under an array of job titles that hampers their identification, fund raisers work for organizations with diverse missions; however, an analysis of association membership reveals that the largest number of practitioners are employed by educational and health organizations.

  • Where to find help Kayja, now 9, also showed her mother her new hat, gloves, shoes, uniform, hair accessories and a voucher to Payless ShoeSource to get another pair of shoes. McCray, a stay-at-home mother of two, doesn't remember filling out any forms asking for help. But she gladly took the freebies. "It's not like we're a charity case," she said. "But if you're willing to help me, I'm willing to be helped." With the state unemployment rate more than double what it was three years ago, the village is now helping to raise the children. Detroit schools and many suburban schools are offering families more help this year in meeting children's basic needs.

    Survival of the cutest
    Naturalists disagree about the fate of the Toklat wolves — and their identity
    by Scott Christiansen
    march 11-17, 1999 / Vol. 8, Ed. 10
    How important is it for Alaskans and visitors to be able to view wolves in the wild, particularly wolves that are so approachable that they all but pose for photos? And if it can be established that a particular group of wolves has a 60-year lineage versus a five-year span, what difference does that make? Does an historic i.d. make them any more worthy of protection from hunters? These are several of the questions currently dividing Alaskan environmental activists and government scientists. Still, when all is said and done, this issue, like many questions of public policy in Alaska, may devolve into an emotional appeal: the allure of a wolf pup’s doggish face. From a small, cramped office in downtown Anchorage, the Alaska Wildlife Alliance is putting together a campaign to extend special protection to wolves that live at the eastern edge of Denali Park. The goal is to close trapping and hunting of wolves in an area adjacent to the park so that the wolves will be protected when they travel outside the park’s boundaries. It’s not unheard of to extend protection for animals traveling outside the park; the park’s caribou herd enjoys such aegis. The campaign is just beginning, but the Alliance already has brought on board a dozen other conservation groups with Alaska offices, from the Sierra Club to the Alaska Center for the Environment. They’re planning fund raisers, teach-ins, and letter-writing calling on the state and federal governments to protect these wolves. If past campaigns to change wildlife management are any indication, by the time this is over, every Alaskan and quite a few outsiders will have heard of the Toklat pack.

    Balancing Fear and Greed
    Career advice for administrative staff members in fund raising and development
    Previous articles

    As a college administrator, I'm supposed to be good with a dollar, fiscally responsible, always discovering new ways to save and spend effectively. More to the point, as a fund raiser I'm conditioned to balance short-term needs with long-term asset building, and to help donors think similarly about their own financial planning. But I rarely think about my own finances and retirement, and I suspect I'm not doing all that I can to ensure my future comfort. So what's wrong with me? To answer that question, I spoke with several colleagues and other administrators in higher education, hoping to compare my situation with theirs. Few people were completely at ease with the subject, and most squirmed a bit under interrogation. But they were also remarkably candid. I suppose I should begin by admitting a high level of ignorance about personal-finance issues to complement my lack of interest. When I took my first job in academe, at the ripe age of 24, I immediately enrolled in a retirement plan. I remember sitting down with our human-resources director, who spouted a bunch of nonsense about Social Security and FICA and annuities and defined contributions. After a while, I began to hear Charlie Brown's teacher an incomprehensible cacophony of syllables punctuated by frequent mentions of "sign here" and "Tia Cref." I assumed Tia was a Norwegian swimsuit model. Something told me his recitation was important, but it made little sense at the time.

    A Matter of Degrees
    Career advice for administrative staff members in fund raising and development
    Previous articles

    Spring arrives late in New Hampshire, but it eventually comes. To college seniors, warmer weather and budding trees mean graduation and possible panic over what to do next. Some, though, are lucky enough to have most things figured out. Take Emily, one of our seniors, who has been a work-study student for two years in our college-relations office. She's learned the finer points of stuffing envelopes, entering data, calling alums to confirm address changes, and rearranging office-supply closets. Based on those exciting tasks, she has decided to pursue a career in university development. Knowing that I'm a veritable font of wisdom, she came to me looking for advice. Emily has everything fairly well planned. She's already mulling a couple of offers for entry-level professional jobs in development offices. She'll start with the annual fund and work her way toward major gifts. After getting a bit of experience, Emily wants to return to school, preferably part time, for a graduate degree. But she's not sure what she should study. Which field or degree program provides the best preparation for a career in fund raising? That was Emily's question to me. For what it's worth, here's what I told her.

      Here are some great ideas to turn educators, students and community members into technology users and supporters. These are methods I've successfully used to promote technology. HOLD EXECUTIVE BRIEFINGS
      Show board members, community leaders, teachers, facility planners, finance directors, and the superintendent the latest technology. Ask hardware vendors to send representatives to demonstrate their latest products. COORDINATE TOURS TO OTHER HIGH-TECH SCHOOLS
      Visit schools within a 50-mile radius to learn about equipment being used there. HOLD "COMPUTER DAY" FOR PARENTS
      Invite parents for a hands-on computer day. Provide child care and offer computer instruction. Teach them to use the software their children use daily. Plan enough instruction on word processing to allow them to create and print out a brief letter to their child. HAVE STUDENTS EVALUATE SOFTWARE
      Choose a class to evaluate each new piece of software. Better yet, develop a "techie tribe" that always, when new software arrives, fills out the registration card, boots it up, and explores its capabilities. Let the students demonstrate it to their teacher and the technology coordinator.

    Innovative teachers turn fundraising programs into learning opportunities When fourth and fifth graders from a Florida elementary school wanted to raise money for a Christmas charity project, their teacher saw it as an opportunity to illustrate real life lessons in citizenship and business management. Armed with cardboard boxes carrying ornaments, gifts and baked goods, Bill Snydor's 22 students went to each classroom in the school to sell their homemade wares, making change, keeping track of inventory and recording their progress daily on a chart of expenses, sales and profits. In two weeks, the Broward County students sold 1,700 items earning $1,200 for the Kids in Distress program. On the other side of the country, California teachers Bonnie McKenna and Sue DeHart shared a dream for a living science lab. So, with the support of their principal, they teamed up to create a student-run business on campus selling giant cookies one day a week after lunch.

    82 Fund Raising Ideas
  • CAR STOP : This is one or the easiest and most profitable fund-raising ideas. Find a busy intersection and get permission from the city to solicit funds from passing motorists. Malls, shopping centers, and other heavy traffic areas can be used also. Supplies for this project are available from the D.R.I. offices. CHRISTMAS BAZAAR : Items for sale are appropriate to give as gifts or to decorate the home for the holidays. This one-day event could raise a great amount of money. GARAGE SALES : Have the largest garage sale ever. Use a group of attached warehouses. Handicrafts, baked goods, used home furnishings, and even unwanted clothing could be among the many items offered at this giant sale. In other areas of the country, where only one garage may be available, organization members can collect unwanted merchandise and tag each piece with an appropriate price. Garage sales frequently bring in several hundred dollars in an after-noon. GARDEN FAIR : Arrange with a local nursery to be sales people in their nursery for two days whereby the organization would receive a 25 percent commission on whatever plants the group sells.
