Here is a video review from Cher Hale
My wife doesn’t usually do the mailing for her non-profit but when she does, the guy who usually handles them forgets to tell her a few important steps. This frustrates her because she gets yelled at by postal employees and has to fix the mailing in the post office (without help). She was venting about this last night – this time the problem was cardboard sleeves.
The funny part is that only seconds earlier, I had read a sentence about cardboard sleeves in your book (p.45). With the page still open in my hands and without missing a beat, I just read that sentence back to her… which you can imagine resulted in a moment of bafflement.
So, now she’ll know how to do these mailings and not have to rely on misinformation from her co-worker.
I just finished the chapter on events and I’m really enjoying your book so far. It’s really engaging and a great resource/reference. Kudos to you!”
“I just wanted to write to you to let you know how much I love your book. I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but it has still been hugely helpful.
Two examples: I customized your corporate sponsorship ask letter to put together a package for an event we have coming up, and I’ve already gotten two sponsorships.
Also, something you said about using volunteers really touched a nerve. We have a ton here at The Telling Room, but they are only utilized for providing direct service to kids or at events. Your book made me realize I should make more of an effort to get volunteers in the Development office to increase my capacity to do this work, especially since I’m a one woman shop. I talked to our volunteer coordinator about it, wrote up a job description for volunteers that is now handed out at our monthly orientations, and I now have people coming in regularly to help me! It’s been amazing. Thanks again!! -Heather Davis, Executive Director, The Telling Room”
“The value of The Wild Woman’s Guide to Fundraising exceeds the price tremendously. I was recently employed at a small, local nonprofit, and this guide has directed me to ask the right questions and use the answers for increased organizational effectiveness. It is a book that you need to keep on your desk for future reference if you plan on raising serious money. -Cher Hale, director at Hero School(heroschool.us)”
