According to Marcia Bloomberg, founder of NonProfit Direct: The NonProfit National Resource Directory, "At the best of times, raising money for a good cause is a major challenge. Now, during the most difficult economy of this new century, it may seem almost impossible, especially for smaller nonprofit organizations. But help is available. In addition to consultants, coaches and specialists with fundraising expertise, there are hundreds of books on fundraising for nonprofit organizations".
Bloomberg adds, "A book can jump start your thinking about raising the funds you need to carry our your mission. You can be inspired by the experience and expertise of veteran fundraisers who have found ideas that work".

"Asking: A 59-Minute Guide to Everything Board Members, Volunteers, and Staff Must Know to Secure the Gift" by Jerold Panas, 108 pp., $24.95
It ranks right up there with public speaking. Nearly all of us fear it. And yet it is critical to our success. Asking for money. It makes even the stout-hearted cower. But now comes a new book, Asking: A 59-Minute Guide to Everything Board Members, Staff and Volunteers Must Know to Secure the Gift. And short of a medical prescription, it’s the next best thing for emboldening you, your board members and volunteers to ask with skill, finesse … and powerful results.
"How to Connect with Donors and Double the Money You Raise" by Thomas Wolf, 109 pp., $24.95 + shipping
Reality check. Can you, as the title of this new book by Thomas Wolf says, really double the money you raise? That depends. If you’re already raising a sizable sum, then, yes, you might well double your revenue by heeding Wolf’s advice.
But if you’re raising only modest amounts now, then you should be able to triple or even quadruple your charitable income. One thing is certain. Most fundraisers haven’t been raising nearly the amount they could, argues Wolf.
