The Complete Guide to Fund-Raising Management.

To survive and thrive in an increasingly competitive philanthropic environment, it's vital that fundraisers make the most of their monetary and staffing resources. Reaching this goal is perhaps easier said than done--unless the right approach is used. This practical how-to book provides an accessible roadmap for fund-raising success.

With incisive explanations of basic fund-raising principles and practices, as well as the fundamentals of strategic management, The Complete Guide to Fund-Raising Management shows how to oversee a comprehensive resource development program that focuses on planning, self-assessment, and continual improvement. Stressing the importance of high-payoff, cost-effective fund-raising strategies, this book provides straight-forward guidelines and step-by-step instructions on how to strengthen your not-for-profit organization and garner the resources needed to carry out its mission.

Along with helpful suggestions on board development, institutional advancement, and volunteer involvement, this complete resource includes a disk that contains innovative prospect rating, call report, prospect tracking, and various other essential forms; sample fund-raising reports that focus on trends and emphasize the importance of monitoring net contributed income and other critical success factors; as well as innovative time management and board nominating grids. Covering all the bases, The Complete Guide to Fund-Raising Management has complete details on:

  • Managing the resource development function--analysis and planning, setting goals, and monitoring the budget
  • Prospect ratings and evaluations--determining the "ideal" volunteer solicitor, the capacity to give, and the request amount
  • Grantsmanship--government contracts, foundations, project development, and foundation research
  • Capital and endowment campaigns--chronological steps for success, including pre-study, advancement, intermediate, and public phases.

Packed with all the essentials of fund-raising management, this is an indispensable resource for those looking to meet--and surpass--their potential in the nonprofit sector.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
