This book provides a conceptual foundation for the fund raising profession, thoroughly examining its principles, strategies and methods. Using practical examples, the authors explain the reasoning behind the planning and selection of strategies for all fund raising activities. Edited by Gene Tempel, Executive Director of Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy, this third edition of the Rosso's fund raising classic both retains the original philosophical principles of the first edition and offers new insights on recent fund raising developments. Each chapter has been updated, and Tempel has added new sections on technology and fund raising, the internet, women as donors, stewardship, and fund raising as a profession. Authors include such fund raising luminaries as Tim Seiler, Dwight Burlingame, Lilya Wagner, Mal Warwick, Kay Sprinkel Grace and Kim Klein."--
