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.

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.
