“An anthology that’s lyrical, poetic and beautifully written …”Collecting Courage: Joy, Pain, Freedom, Love is a collection of stories documenting racism and survival by 14 accomplished Black fundraisers working in charities across North America. With searing and intimate detail, they write about their experiences with anti-Black racism—about coping with being last hired, first fired, overlooked for promotion to outright hostility in toxic workplaces. Their testimony chips away at the idea of the inherent goodness of the charitable sector.“First and foremost, this book is the start of a process to systematically document our experiences, so our voices are the ones that shape the narrative,” say the editors. “Secondly, for those whom our stories resonate, we hope they give you the courage to voice your own experience. “Finally, for those committed to being allies and accomplices in dismantling barriers and championing a sector culture of belonging and reciprocity, we hope the book illuminates a path to action.”In addition to the editors Nneka Allen, Camila Vital Nunes Pereira and Nicole Salmon, contributors to Collecting Courage include Birgit Burton, Christal Cherry, Kishshana Palmer, Heba Mahmoud, Mide Akerewusi, Naimah Bilal, Niambi Martin-John, Fatou Jammeh, Muthoni Kariuki, Sherrie James and Marva Wisdom.

Enhancing the Volunteer Experience: New Insights on Strengthening Volunteer Participation, Learning, and Commitment
Deal
For many organizations, recruiting and maintaining a core group of dedicated volunteers spells the difference between success and failure. But very little research has been done to find out what motivates people to volunteer, how to recruit volunteers, and how to nurture their dedication. Enhancing the Volunteer Experience reveals, from the perspective of the volunteer, how management can foster?? or impede?? the growth of high-quality, long-lived volunteer programs, and how to ensure that volunteering remains a dynamic force that generates social change. Drawing on a four-year study of volunteers in a variety of fields and extensive interviews with 180 people, Ilsey provides nonprofit managers with the insights, skills, and strategies they need to recruit and retain committed volunteers, and to make the volunteer experience rich, rewarding, and productive.

Praise for Recruiting and Training Fundraising Volunteers "Linda Lysakowski brings into focus the realities of enlisting volunteers to ensure success in a campaign.

I wish such a comprehensive treatise had been available to me forty years ago!" --Milton Murray, Director Emeritus Philanthropic Service for Institutions Adventist World Headquarters (Silver Spring, Maryland) "It was a pleasure to read Ms. Lysakowski's book, which outlines the roles of volunteers in the art of fundraising. Linda has woven the guidance of the great masters of philanthropy and volunteer management partnered with her extensive life experience. This is a must-have resource for development officers and nonprofit leadership essential for both volunteers and management. I especially liked the 'In the Real World' examples of concepts in action that could be implemented locally." --Ann H. Moffitt, CFRE, Vice President of Community Development Keystone Human Services, and CEO, Keystone Partnership (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) "Research and practice tell us that organizations that engage volunteers in fundraising have more sustained success, even in tough times. This book is a substantive contribution to the literature of volunteer fundraisers, and it reminds us of the honorable role of volunteers in fundraising, even in this time of the growing professionalization of staff fundraising." --Timothy L. Seiler, PhD, CFRE, Director Public Service and The Fund Raising School, Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University (Indianapolis, Indiana)
