In Born to Raise, the author wrote: "Someone once told me that my career would have five stages: 1) Who is Jerry Panas? 2) Get me Jerry Panas, 3) We need someone like Jerry Panas, 4) What we need is a young Jerry Panas, and 5) Who is Jerry Panas?"
Jerry believes heÃ‚Â’s somewhere between stages two and three. "But," he says, "my friends indicate IÃ‚Â’m somewhere in stage four, quickly approaching stage five!"
Hailed in Newsweek as "the Robert Schuller of fundraising," Jerry is the author of seven books, many of them classics in the field. HeÃ‚Â’s also a popular columnist for Contributions magazine and a familiar and favorite speaker at conferences and workshops throughout the nation.
A senior officer of one of AmericaÃ‚Â’s premier fundraising firms, Jerry lives with his wife, Felicity, in a 1710 Farmhouse in northwest Connecticut.Review:
