AFP Builds AFP Nonprofit Essentials Series
April 18, 2005
(April 18, 2005) AFP expands the new Nonprofit Essential Series with the release of the latest book in the series, Endowment Building.
Nonprofit Essentials: Endowment Building
Nonprofit Essentials: Endowment Building by Diana Newman is now available through the AFP Bookstore. Endowment Building outlines the step-by-step process for developing and implementing an endowment program. In practical, down-to-earth terms, it covers making the case for endowments (involving the board and securing the support of members), raising funds (planned giving and special events), investing the money (asset allocation and spending policies), marketing (preparing a strategic marketing plan) and much more.
'Endowment funds will make the difference between organizations which thrive in the future and those which struggle to survive,' says Nancy Herrold Strapp, executive vice president and chief development officer, Buckhorn Children & Family Services. 'Endowment Building by Diana Newman provides both practical, hands-on advice and a philosophical, inspirational framework to guide novice and experienced mission-based organizations. Given the demographic opportunities and challenges facing the nonprofit world, this book is a 'must-read.''
