Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
Over one-quarter of Americans volunteer with nonprofits. The majority of people are not professional fundraisers and their groups are small and community related. Most volunteers rarely get a paycheck and don’t have other resources available like a donor history database or other tools most established nonprofits fundraisers have. The Volunteers Guide to Fundraising is a new guide from Nolo to help volunteers make the most of the resources they do have.
The Volunteers Guide to Fundraising is a comprehensive but accessible guide for the everyday volunteer who finds themselves organizing a fundraiser. The book has practical advice about community group fundraising including a chapter on sponsorships and donations by businesses and conducting fairs and festivals. It also contains insights and stories from a team of nonprofit experts, including executive directors, accountants, event planners, lawyers, and group leaders, that explains both the nuts-and-bolts of fundraising and the fun, creative aspects. Volunteers will have all the information they need to stay out of trouble when raising and handling money too.
