This manifesto is part proclamation, part guidebook and part visual experience. In his bold style, Tom issues a series of challenges to abandon traditional campaigns (think: feasibility studies, volunteer solicitations, slick brochures). He provides lessons, insights and simple ideas based on the 33 years of field experience and hundreds of campaigns. He shares stories from campaigns ranging in size -- including several $100M+ initiatives.

Tom is a guru on the existing movement around social entrepreneurship, philanthropy and "not-for-profits". This is his first published "book" which is really a guide for anyone in a campaign, planning a campaign or even thinking about a campaign.
Tom takes his 33 years of experience in the field and challenges non-profits to "change the way you think; change the way you operate; change the way you fund your vision!" starting with a fundamental concept: "Stop defining yourself in the negative!" Be FOR something... FOR IMPACT!
He then challenges the social entrepreneur mavericks of the world to re-imagine... think BIG... Take a Quantum Leap!About the Author:

He eventually became the Director of Development and headed the Campaign for Notre Dame, which raised $180 Million ($50 Million over the $130 Million Goal). In 1983, he founded The Suddes Group, which has managed over 300 campaigns, raised over $1 Billion, and helped generate 3 million new hobs in their work with 125 economic development organizations around the country. He has made more than 6,000 one-on-one major gift presentations, and has trained thousands of nonprofit leaders in the art and science of for impact organizations. He speaks and provides training throughout the country for entrepreneurs, sales people and leaders in both the not-for-profit and the for-profit sector. A serial entrepreneur since age 16, Tom has founded 19 businesses and was the first Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at Notre Dame.
