Marking its 20th year in print, the new 6th edition of this fundraising bible has been brought bang up to date for a new generation of fundraisers.
Chapters on the National Lottery, Government Funding, Company Giving, the European Union are fully revised and updated.
With contributions from UK fundraising experts and illustrated with case studies throughout, this book provides a wealth of practical advice on every aspect of fundraising for charity making it essential reading for both new fundraisers wanting to avoid common mistakes and experienced fundraisers looking to keep up-to-date or increase their fundraising success.
‘There has never been a more volatile operating environment for fundraisers. If there ever was such a thing as a social compact it’s being torn up as governments around the world address our economic woes. The need for investment in our communities becomes more critical every day; Fundraisers are the agents securing that investment.
‘This is not just a fundraising handbook, not even the fundraising handbook. It is The Complete Fundraising Handbook and as much as anything ever could, it deserves that title.’
Ken Burnett, from the Foreword
‘The Complete Fundraising Handbook is a critical tool for fundraisers – more so now than ever before. Fundraising, grant writing, corporate giving and major donors – all become achievable with the handbook’s help. Nina Botting and Michael Norton’s expertise on a global platform ensures that this is one of the best resources available to the fundraising market today.’
Andrew Watt, FInstF
President & CEO, Association of Fundraising Professionals, USA
‘As someone who is about to move from being the Director of Fundraising from a large charity, to a Chief Executive in a smaller one, I can see this will be my bible wherever I go. Fundraisers are amongst the best in the world for sharing experience, since we are all in the job of making the world a better place. This book is an excellent example of how we are united in this goal.’
Gill Raikes MBE,
Former Director of Fundraising, National Trust, now Chief Executive of the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity
‘I have been in professional fundraising for 29 years and worked across the globe. For 20 of those years The Complete Fundraising Handbook has been at my side acting a point of reference, and a training tool for those new to fundraising. It is indeed the publication I would request if asked to fundraise my way off the proverbial Desert Island! I commend the team at the DSC for bringing the Handbook bang up to date. I will be putting an order in for early Christmas presents for clients and colleagues.’
Daryl Upsall FInstF
Chief Executive, Daryl Upsall Consulting International
‘To keep up to date with our fast paced world fundraisers must have the fundraising techniques, trends and ideas of the moment in the palm of their hand. This latest revision brings all these up to date in an engaging and inspiring way. A must have in every fundraiser’s library.’
