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.
