What’s happening in the world of fundraising?

It’s not very often that we look beyond our own nonprofit’s backyard let alone past its international borders. Global Fundraising editors Bernard Ross and Penelope Cagney have given us a long overdue look at what’s happening in the world of fundraising. Literally.

Global Fundraising looks at worldwide developments in philanthropy that are revolutionizing the fundraising world.

Editors Cagney and Ross have compiled this book for fundraisers, CEOs, professional advisors and grant-making leaders who are turning their attention to the philanthropic potential beyond their own borders.

This book looks at remarkable case stories written by experts from these countries and many more: India, Brazil, Russia, Australia and Japan. Each of the chapters focuses on the new practices in the realms of technology, innovation and major donors. Global Fundraising offers an insider’s guide that includes rich insights on how to engage your nonprofit internationally.

We recently had a chance to interview Cagney about the book on several topics. Enjoy her insights into the following subject areas of the book:

1) Introduction to the book Global Fundraising: Cagney-introduction to Global Fundraising

2) Innovation from everywhere/Which of the other countries’ strategies are most transferable or worth considering? Cagney- innovation from everywhere

3) Trends for nonprofits to consider in global fundraising: Cagney-global fundraising trends

4) What should nonprofits know about charity giants? Cagney-What nonprofits need to know

5) Current observations on global fundraising: Cagney-Current observations

While many philanthropists, nonprofit leaders and fundraisers have an eye on proven practices among the usual suspects in North America and Europe, numerous charities both giant and small, inside and outside these regions are exhibiting innovative methods worthy of global attention.

The worldwide nonprofit sector is keenly aware of the need for creativity and tested practices and this book proves organizations need only look beyond their borders. Cagney and Ross have uncovered helpful case stories in countries that once were considered unlikely places for fundraising achievements.

CausePlanet’s Choice Awards–Our Top Nonprofit Books for 2015

This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. One of them is our chance to look back at a great year of book choices for our readers.

It’s also the hardest time of the year because we choose books that stand out among the rest. Now, this may seem like an easy task but it isn’t. Choosing from titles that are already among our favorites is like choosing a favorite child. Thankfully, the challenging task is tempered by the fact that we know you love these awards. Thank you for the wonderful feedback when we launched this designation last year.

All our Choice Award titles are chosen based on the following criteria: original insights, inspirational content, well-organized and easy-to-follow format, voice, applicability, and strong evidence of case stories and/or exhibits.

Our Choice Awards for 2015 go to the following authors:

The Sustainability Mindset by Steve Zimmerman and Jeanne Bell
This book not only effectively argues the importance of having financial and programming discussions within the same conversation, but the authors also provide a proven framework designed to guide the process toward sound decision-making. Thanks to matrix mapping, your leaders can leave the guesswork out of strategic planning.

The Last Virtual Volunteering Guidebook by Jayne Cravens and Susan Ellis
Cravens and Ellis do a wonderful job of addressing how volunteering has changed so dramatically over the years that calling out the notion of virtual volunteering is no longer necessary because this form of giving has meshed with traditional volunteering. This thorough guidebook is the resource for anyone managing volunteers.

Global Fundraising: How the World Is Changing the Rules of Philanthropy edited by Penelope Cagney and Bernard Ross
Cagney and Ross create a rare and fascinating look at what types of fundraising are working all over the world. In a telescoping society that’s facilitated by technology, nonprofits’ reach is farther than ever before. This book helps you gather context for your fundraising efforts and consider what’s influencing your donors outside of traditional boundaries and borders.
On behalf of the CausePlanet team, we would like to thank these authors and the company of authors they share who’ve contributed so much to the sector in which we work. We hope our Page to Practice™ book summaries have inspired you to engage in deeper reading and make better book choices. Don’t forget—December is Read a New Book Month. Choose one of these titles or any of the great recommendations in our book summary library and work smarter in 2016.
