An important roadmap for fundraising in today's multicultural communities
Raising money in today's diverse communities is a growing challenge for fundraisers and philanthropists, requiring thoughtful strategies, successful collaborations, and a respectful understanding of people's differences.
In this groundbreaking new book, the author examines today's four major ethnic groups-African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American-in terms of their diverse histories, traditions, and motivations, and then applies this information to the proven components of successful fundraising. The result is a timely and important look at how fundraisers can use an understanding of ethnic differences to create a vibrant and balanced nonprofit center through both individual and collective efforts.
In clear, easy-to-understand language, Cultivating Diversity in Fundraising answers the following critical questions:
* Who are diverse donors?
* What are their charitable traditions and interests?
* What fundraising methods will be successful in diverse communities?
* What can fundraisers do to include more diversity in fundraising efforts?
Designed as a guide to fundraising as well as a strategic update for existing fundraisers, this book should be required reading for anyone working in today's nonprofit sector.

As contemporary American communities become ever more ethnically diverse, companies and organizations seeking to raise funds are discovering that generic fundraising approaches are no longer effective. In order to be successful, fundraisers in today’s multicultural world must gain a better understanding of the critical factors that motivate different ethnic groups to give.
Integrating such elements as history, tradition, and values with the components of successful fundraising, Cultivating Diversity in Fundraising clearly demonstrates what is necessary and appropriate to successfully raise money and increase philanthropic awareness in today’s diverse communities. Written as a guide for those planning to raise funds in these communities, the book provides readers with an in-depth understanding of the philanthropic motivation of each of the four major racial/ethnic populations: African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American. As these groups differ in lifestyle, values, and traditions, so do their reasons for giving.
Organized by ethnic group into several easy reference sections, the book includes an overview of such factors as the history and immigration patterns for each population and cultural traditions that influence donating patterns. The author also presents recent demographic data, a review of ethnic fundraising practices, and highlights of philanthropic practices from within each population. Finally, the book presents several illustrative case studies, written by professionals in the field, each designed to promote discussion and further insight into specific aspects of diversity in fundraising, and analyzes them in terms of their strategies and effectiveness.
An important addition to the literature of fundraising and philanthropy, Cultivating Diversity in Fundraising should be a much-used reference on every fundraiser’s bookshelf.About the Author:
