    FAITH-BASED GRANTS : ALIGNING YOUR CHURCH TO RECEIVE ABUNDANCE. Beverly A. Browning. Buckeye, Az. : BBA, 2005. 165pp. Funding Center (1 East) HV530 .B767 2005
    The book was written to guide churches and other ministry groups how to position themselves to receive what remains of the Federal faith-based grantmaking initiative—in other words, "How to get a piece of the pie before the pie is gone." In 168 pages of detailed information, the author guides readers on how to conduct an organizational needs assessment; strategic funding plan; file for a separate IRS nonprofit status (application form and guidelines are appended); create community partnerships, and more! Remember, the author is a grant writer, so in Chapter 8: Writing Right is where she shares her expertise in this area. In all, this 10-chapter workbook is a great self-guiding tool for faith-based groups.

    FIELD GUIDE TO NONPROFIT PROGRAM DESIGN, MARKETING, AND EVALUATION. Carter McNamara. Minneapolis, Minn. : Authenticity Consulting, 2003. 252pp. Main Library Stacks HG4027.65 .M363 2002
    To effectively design a program, you must have clear understanding of the program's clients and their needs to be met by the program. That understanding comes from conducting an effective marketing analysis. To effectively advertise and promote a program, you must have clear understanding of the program's clients, their needs and their habits, along with the benefits of the program to the clients. To effectively evaluate a program, you must have clear understanding of the program's goals and intended outcomes, and integrate indicators of success into the program's design well before the program even starts operating. Thus, the activities of program design, marketing and evaluation are highly integrated and should be treated as such, ideally in one comprehensive publication (like this one), rather than across several. This guidebook provides clear, concise and comprehensive guidelines for all critical aspects of designing, marketing and evaluating a nonprofit program. Guidelines are written in an easy-to-implement style, resulting in a highly practical resource that can be referenced at any time during the life of a nonprofit program.

    FINANCING AND ACQUIRING PARK AND RECREATION RESOURCES. John L. Crompton. Champaign, Il. : Human Kinetics, 1999. 535pp. Main Library Stacks SB486.F54 C76 1999
    When John Crompton and Dennis Howard co-authored their classic book Financing, Managing and Marketing Recreation and Park Resources in 1979, they put the spotlight on a growing shortfall in park funding and discussed an array of innovative solutions. Twenty years later, continued budget cutbacks and additional service demands have made funding an even greater concern for park and recreation managers. Now Crompton has put every aspect of park and recreation financing into a comprehensive resource that will help today's and tomorrow's managers meet the daily challenge of "doing more with less."
    Financing and Acquiring Park and Recreation Resources is not an abstract reference destined to fill space on a shelf, but a comprehensive source book filled with real and workable solutions. It examines the forces behind decreased public spending and presents a wide range of alternative funding methods being used to bridge the gap and pay for new facilities and programs. You'll find information on everything from the traditional mechanisms of municipal bonds and property taxes to the evolving role of donations, volunteers, sponsorships, foundations, coproduction, and public-private alliances in funding park operations.
    No other book covers so much information with such clarity and detail. Crompton has successfully rewritten the "bible" of financial problem solving for public park and recreation organizations. If there's a way to cut costs, raise funds, form partnerships, or reevaluate assets to further the successful operation of park and recreation areas, you'll find it in this book.

    While some predict a coming "golden age of philanthropy", Gary J. Hubbell, senior strategist, Growth Design Corporation, in a manuscript entitled Forces of Change: The Coming Challenges in Hospital Philanthropy, published by The Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), presents a much less robust future for hospital philanthropy - especially for community hospitals. According to Hubbell, the growing commercialization of nonprofit hospitals, continuing evidence of civic disengagement, and generational characteristics are the leading forces of change that will intersect in unprecedented ways. These trends and others could lead to diminished returns on hospital fund raising.

    Klein asserts that nonprofits are in a very unusual situation, probably of long duration, that can ultimately threaten their ability to carry out their programs. The economy has affected individuals and institutional givers' ability to donate; the war on terrorism has chilled the interest in giving to controversial causes; the growth of the nonprofit sector (creating greater competition), scandals, and "mission drift" have all contributed to unprecedented challenges in the new millennium. Klein provides guidance on pursuit of specific techniques for the next year, as well as longer-term strategies.

    FUNDRAISING MISTAKES THAT BEDEVIL ALL BOARDS (AND STAFF TOO) : A 1-HOUR GUIDE TO IDENTIFYING AND OVERCOMING OBSTACLES TO YOUR SUCCESS / Kay Sprinkel Grace. Medfield, MA : Emerson & Church, c2004. 109pp. Funding Center (1 East) HV41.9.U5 G713 2004
    Fundraising mistakes are a thing of the past. Or, rather, there's no excuse for making a serious mistake anymore. And that goes for board members, staff, novice, or veteran. If you blunder from now on, it simply means you haven't read Kay Sprinkel Grace's book, Fundraising Mistakes that Bedevil All Boards (and Staff Too), in which she exposes the Top 40 errors that thwart us time and again. This is indeed a devilishly good book, and it's a wonder it wasn't written years ago. If you've attended a fundraising seminar, or read a Jerry Panas book, or perused one of the field's journals, you're familiar with a dozen or so mistakes to avoid. But the appeal of this book – and it will become a classic – is that in one place it gathers and discusses ALL of the troublesome ones. Some, like the following, will be second nature to you (but not to your board, for whom this book is mostly intended): "Tax deductibility is a powerful incentive." It isn't, as you know. "People will give just because yours is a good cause." They won't. "Special events are the best way to raise money." Quite the contrary. Other mistakes aren't as apparent. For example: "You need a powerful board to have a successful campaign." Truth be told, many are convinced that without a powerful board they can't succeed. Grace shows otherwise. Or, "Wealth is mostly what determines a person's willingness to give." Not so. Other factors are equally important. Then, too, there are more nuanced mistakes: "We can't raise big money - we don't know any rich people." Don't believe it. You can raise substantial dollars. "Most people don't like to give." To the contrary, many find joy in it. "Without a stable of annual donors, you can't have a successful capital campaign." In fact you can, but your tactics will be different. And that touches on only seven of the 41 mistakes Grace explores (and explodes). Just as anyone involved in journalism should own a copy of Strunk and White's, The Elements of Style, anyone involved in fundraising – board member, staff, volunteer – should have Fundraising Mistakes that Bedevil All Boards (and Staff Too) by their side. When Grace makes it so easy to avoid costly errors, it is nothing if not imprudent to risk repeating them. FUNDRAISING ON eBAY : HOW TO RAISE BIG MONEY ON THE WORLD'S GREATEST ONLINE MARKETPLACE. Greg Holden and Jill Finlayson. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill. 2005. xv, 335 p. Main Library Stacks HV41.2 .H62 2005

    FUNDRAISING ON THE INTERNET : THE ePhilanthropyFoundation.Org's GUIDE TO SUCCESS ONLINE. Daryl E. Ferguson, Mim Carlson, Mal Warwick. San Francisco, CA : Jossey-Bass Publishers, 2001. 2nd edition, 291pp. Main Library Stacks HV41.2 .F87 2002
    Even before the atrocities of 9/11, the nonprofit world was in need of a single source of pragmatic perspective and advice on the sometimes bewildering world of the Internet — told not from a single author’s perspective, but from the viewpoint of the acknowledged leaders in the nonprofit online world. Created to fill that gap, Fundraising on the Internet has taken on central importance as nonprofit organizations large and small grapple with the apparent sea change wrought by the events of.
    In an interview in early November, two of its editors, Ted Hart of ePhilanthropyFoundation.Org and Nick Allen of donordigital.com, confirmed that now, more than ever, nonprofit managers need to understand both the big picture and enough of the details to integrate their organizations’ online presence with other facets of their development programs. Indeed, in a nod to the new realities, Hart indicated that a supplement is already in the works to cover the implications of 9/11 to online philanthropy.
    What’s remarkable about this book is its breadth. I wouldn’t recommend that the reader read it from cover to cover (well, okay, I did, but I’m odd that way); rather, scan the various chapters and read what’s relevant to your organization. Interested in e-mail campaigns or e-newsletters? There’s a chapter on that. Challenged by managing donor records? There’s a chapter called "Managing Donor Data Online," by Jay B. Love, another called "ePhilanthropy and Donor Management Systems," by Shaun Sullivan, and yet another called "Faster, Cheaper, Better: Internet Outsourcing to Boost Your Online Presence," by George Irish and Ken Weber.
    The Internet is a visual medium, and the book does a good job in providing large, readable screen shots to illustrate the points of the various chapters. I like that. Okay, I do have a tiny quibble: the screen shots are black and white and therefore miss some of the impact that colorful Web pages provide. But, on the other hand, the book is priced affordably at $29 U.S. and $40.50 Canadian — which brings it within reach of thousands of nonprofit professionals. At that price, so what if the screenshots are black and white? Heck, I can always use my Web browser if I want to see the color versions anyway.
