"Give your donors what they want." "Friend-make before you fundraise." "Open hearts and minds, then wallets." "Turn complaints into support." "Plagiarize creatively." These are just a few of the 84 timeless principles that Ken Burnett reveals in The Zen of Fundraising. The book, filled with sound advice and information on how to connect with donors and raise money for nonprofit organizations, is an engaging guide to the care and nurturing of donors. Free from unnecessary padding and extraneous information, it is a concise, insightful, and fun read that covers the most important things fundraisers need to know. The Zen of Fundraising speaks to anyone who wants to raise money for a cause he or she cares about. It's a one-of-a-kind look into what makes donors tick and-more importantly-what makes them give. Ken Burnett (Melrand, France) is an internationally acclaimed fundraising and marketing specialist. Burnett is a columnist for Contributions and Professional Fundraising, a contributor to the nonprofit trades, and in demand as a plenary speaker at nonprofit events.
