What is the fundraising community saying about the book?

‘This book deserves to be open on your desk in a place of practical use: dog-eared, marked-up, pages flagged for future world-changing projects. The links and exhibits contained here transformed the way I do my work as a fundraising copywriter (and continue to do so). Use this book daily. I know I will.’

Lisa Sargent, campaigning fundraising copywriter, USA

‘Precious donors guided by campaigning fundraisers want to be inspired, angered, impassioned and given a chance to be heroes... This book, filled with powerful examples accompanied by Ken’s sharp wit and profound insights, is a treasure.’

David Love, author and leading environmental campaigning fundraiser, Canada

‘I love this book, I love its spirit and I think the fundraising sector will love it too...The book and its exhibits will be very encouraging for those looking to join the sector, equipping them to take a donor-focused approach and tell their supporters the right stories in the right way at the right time.’

Ryan Burdock, Associate Director – Fundraising at Prospectus, London, UK
