The Fundraising Series

The economy, political landscape and the ways people exchange information and communicate with each other all impact on the way in which charities ask for, and raise money. That is what makes fundraising such a challenging and dynamic profession.

These titles are written and used by academics and practitioners alike. Each title explores a fundraising activity within its historical, ethical and theoretical context and relates to current fundraising practice. The series is being revised in association with the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent and is led by Dr Claire Routley and Dr Beth Breeze. The Fundraising Series is also supported by The Chartered Institute of Fundraising as a member benefit. We are indebted to Professor Adrian Sargeant for his early enthusiasm for and mentoring of the series.
