$5.78

Here is a wealth of first-hand information on how to raise money for all kinds of causes — from universities to parish churches. Brought to you by this dean of the fund-raising profession are the concepts and methods that have spelled success for outstanding fund-raisers of the past four decades, especially of the significant year since World War II. Designed as a concise, practical reference, the book gives step-by-step directions at every point. It outlines the important background a fund-raiser must have and shows just what to do before, during, and after a fund-raising campaign. The books shows how to avoid costly and wasteful errors — how to shun seemingly promising approaches that have in fact proved fruitless or disastrous time and again. It covers areas of special recent interest such as bequest programs, alumni funds, global programs, health agencies, and memorial campaigns. For example, it discloses for the first time what happened in the Kennedy Memorial Library appeal. Among the topics discussed are people?s basic motivations . . . characteristics of the giving process . . . types of givers . . . solicitation, timing, and momentum . . . costs . . . three key qualifications for raising substantial sums . . . why big gifts need little gifts . . . the basic relationship between professional staff and the supervising laity . . . collections vs. organized campaigns . . . and much more. Harold J. Seymour (1894-1968) is still well known throughout the fund-raising profession and served with distinction a wide range of organizations covering virtually the entire philanthropic spectrum. A 1916 graduate of Harvard College, he began his career in 1919 when he joined the staff of the Harvard Endowment Fund Campaign. Seymour was one of the founders, a past president, and an honorary member of the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel.

    This is one of those classic, seminal books that should be on every fundraiser’s shelf. Si Seymour’s “Designs for Fundraising” was published in 1966 and lays out the core principles of fundraising that are still as effective and poignant today as they were over 50 years ago. These are the core values and tenants of our profession and laid the groundwork, if not the inspiration, for the work of those fundraising leaders who came after; Jerry Panas famously interviewed Si Seymour and cited his work as the inspiration for his own. What Seymour accomplished in this work is what, today, we continue to search for in our analysis and studies of work and, while the techniques he may refer to may have changed (after all, email was an as-yet-unknown technology in 1966), the core principles of the work are outlined in this book and serve to teach us that the fundamentals of fundraising are timeless.
