1-0 out of 5 stars Worst writing I've read in a long time
You decide for yourself what you think about Mortenson.I think the subtitle of the book should be "How One Man Became a Dhimmi."
5-0 out of 5 stars Put so simply...
No doubt this story seemed like an inspiring one. The question for me was, could the writer do a good job conveying it? The answer is- yes!! There are no words to describe how this story made me feel. I was moved to tears more than once. It's about time that we had something to read or listen to that speaks to the humanity of the majority of Muslims. Until now it seemed like we were given no option but to lump them all into the "fanatic" category. There was no one to speak up for the rest of the population. The story of the poor village women of Pakistan giving eggs to Greg to honor 9/11 widows was heart-wrenching. The speech by a supreme Shia ruler to a local village after 9/11 was equally gut-wrenching. Thank you to Greg Mortenson for shining a light on the region. His work building schools by working WITH tribal people of Afghanistan and Pakistan is incredibly brave. The effort taken to learn the local languages and customs is phenomenal. Thank you David Oliver Relin for bringing the story to us and for providing so much background information to help round out the story! This book helped fill so many holes in my understanding of the region. What the heck are the Taliban? Why can't Islamabad just take control of its northern region? What drives many people to choose death via "jihad" over life? I am inspired to read and understand even more about the fascinating people of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
5-0 out of 5 stars Is America more secure than on 9/11?
Besides being an exciting and courageous mission story, Three Cups of Tea is an effective alternative to Bush's so-called "compassionate conservatism" and "war on terror".

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Enlightening
Melissa Fay Greene's book is a voice for the millions of orphans unable to speak or understand the brutal reality that is their everyday life. Her diligent research and personal observation has given us insight to a devastation so alarming that it seems incomprehensible that humanity hasn't moved beyond the table talk to actively control the "pandemic". The author introduces us to a woman of remarkable courage, service and commitment as she struggles to heal from her personal losses by opening her heart to orphaned children with a renewed spirit and purpose. I am grateful to the author for tackling a social issue of perplexing magnitude with respect, sincerity and fact.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, powerful & moving
For years, I have thought about adopting a child from Africa, and this book confirmed for me that this is something I will, and need to do in the near future.This book was heartbreaking, heartfelt, and also showed the power of what simple woman with endless love in her heart can do.Haregewoin Teferra is a true angel here on earth - she took in orphans, some of them infected with HIV, in a country where such a disease is stigmatized.She overcame her own personal heartbreak over losing her husband and daughter and transformed that pain into something amazing and beautiful. She is a true inspiration to me.To hear the statistics of poverty and disease in Africa is mind-boggling.It humbles me and makes me want to do more.We should all want to do more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic page turner
First, a confession:My family, joined together through adoption, is mentioned in this book.I admit to wanting to like this book, beginning to read with a certain prejudice, wanting the book to be good.Instead I discovered that Melissa Fay Greene's latest book is fantastic, a page turner, a book that I began one night and then continued to read into the wee hours, finding myself unable to put it down.You will laugh, you will cry, you will be amazed and depressed and convicted and yet you will be so glad you read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend this Book!!!
I just received this book in the mail and it is beautiful. If you know a knitter or someone who aspires to learn knitting (although this is not a "how-to" book for those who can't knit), or just want to buy a great inspirational book, I can't recommend this book enough!! It is a beautiful, inspiring book. It has quotes, photos and stories of organizations that knit for others---orphans, refugees, preemies, animal shelter pets, and a host of other highly inspiring organizations. I discovered that knitting for peace and for others is a part of our heritage and pure Americana. I commend the author for this beautiful, inspiring, well-written book. I plan on buying several for holiday gifts. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars, I would!
5-0 out of 5 stars so inspiring yet simple
I can't say enough good things about this book. It is full of information and inspiring stories. It also has some great historical anecdotes. In addition, it's gorgeous!!

I loved this book! The Seven Faces of Philanthropy offers a very helpful donor-centered approach to interacting with donors.5-0 out of 5 stars Who are you asking?
This is a very important read for the not-for-profit person planning to ask for money. It is important to understand the motivations for giving and incorporate that into your "ask".4-0 out of 5 stars Real Useful Information for Real Non-Profit Professionals
Prince and File really did a number on this book. It contains valuableinformation about how to friend raise, how best to serve friends of yournon-profit, and how to keep them on board with your organization. The bookdescribes seven philanthropic "personalities" and allows thereader to think about his or her own constituents and how they might fit inwith these personalities. A remarkable work, that is insightful yet easy tounderstand and apply. ... Read more

Kim Klein is a nationally known expert in the area of fundraising, and demonstrates comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of fundraising in the book.She presents the information in an easy to understand format, and shares her expertise in a motivational manner.I highly recommend this book, even if you have been in fundraising for a number of years.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for any progressive organization staff member
This is a must read for any staff member of a small not for profit organization. It's a bit freeky how she knows so much about my group, and then cuts to the chase on how to address the problems identified.

Like many in the Jossey Bass series, Tempel's work is thorough and well-written, covering all important aspects of fundraising. A great introductory guide.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for the fundraising professional!
Whether you've been in the fundraising profession for 10 minutes or 10 years, do yourself a favour and read this book. It will make you proud to be part of the tradition of philanthropy. It will inspire and guide you. You will see yourself and the volunteers and donors you work with in a whole new light. Don't put it in your library. Keep it on your desk. The first time you read it, and you will read it joyfully from cover to cover, keep pen and paper handy. You will find yourself making a list of things you need and want to do. Achieving Excellence in Fundraising is thoughtful and thought-provoking. It is the place where the theory, practice, philosophy and spirituality of a great tradition meet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Review for the Golden Gate Chapter of AFP Newsletter
On my fundraising shelf stood just two books and a binder: "Designs for Fundraising" by Harold Seymour � 1966; "The Raising of Money" by James Gregory Lord � 1987, and my collected monthly newsletters of tips from Taft. Not a lot to go on, but Seymour's classic helped me enormously, imparting such nuggets as, "At best, with few exceptions, people don't pay close or careful attention to anything."Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pragmatic worksheets
If you come in to our nonprofit management support organization and ask for a book on grant proposal writing, there are two we'll pull out right away: Grassroots Grants and Winning Grants Step by Step. We're often asked which to choose. Of all the books we see, these are the two we most often recommend, but they do have different approaches.3-0 out of 5 stars good, basic overview but don't use alone
I am a consultant, grantwriter, and trainer who specializes in technical assistance and training for HIV/AIDS services.I provide a copy of this workbook to participants in my grantwriting ("Bringing Home the Money!) workshops, because it's a good, basic overview of many of the different parts of the request for funding proposal.3-0 out of 5 stars Good for foundation grants, not so good for gov't grants
The information contained in this book primarily applies to non-governmental entities soliciting grants from non-profit foundations.Organizations like the NSF, NIH, etc., have fairly strict guidelines and don't permit the "excesses" encouraged in this book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally - Access to the inside story on CSR!
Having spent the last 2 years researching the CSR arena, it is a miracle to find a collection of such provocative, inspiring and well-told stories of the world's biggest corporations' commitment to the community.Each chapter pulls back the curtain on the real story of CSR in a different Fortune 500 company, focusing not only on the benefit to the community, but importantly, on the benefit to the company as well.I have yet to find a resource as valuable on the subject of CSR. It is a must-read for anyone working in a corporation - big or small.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly inspiring! A Must Read!
This book has totally inspired both me and my sister.My sister started her own business last year, and she has been trying to think of an effective way to give back to the community.Until reading Benioff's book, I thought one would have to wait until the company was more financially secure.But, his "one percent model," which states that 1% of time, equity and product can be directed towards philanthropy, is a terrific - and manageable - way for her small shop to become an instrument of change.She is putting this plan into effect ASAP.Not everyone can be Bill Gates, but we can certainly play a part!

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring...
It is inspiring to see that so many CEOs are focused on more than just the bottom line. Many REALLY DO give back to their communities (outside of PR photo opps with a big check!). Doesn't matter if you work at a small boutique or multi-national business, I think this book will give you insight into what works - and what doesn't - when it comes to corporate philanthropy. It's like sitting down to dinner with 20 CEOs and picking their brain. Each chapter is essentially a case study. A quick easy, feel-good read that actually might do this world some good. ...

In the short time I've had this book, I've used it extensivly to plan a forthcoming $25 million campaign in a college within a university.

I deeply appreciate Mr. Dove's efforts to update his work and provide this useful guide.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fundraising book for the small nonprofit, or one that is not well organized!
This is a great book for the small nonprofit that does not know much about fundraising. If it were for a more established nonprofit, then it would not have referred to major gifts as those starting at $500. I'm used to major gifts starting at $10,000 and going up well into the 6 figures.
5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and Simple Explanations of What Works
There are a tremendous number of non-profits around. There are also a tremendous number of funding organizations. Your job as the fundraising manager (whatever your exact job title may be) is to put your particular non-profit together with one or more funding organizations to raise the money you need.

5-0 out of 5 stars A historical and biographical account of social entrepreneurial heros and heroines
I found it inspiring and at the same time intimidating to contemplate the brilliant, hardworking people who inhabit this book.All of them committed their lives, talents, and fortunes to tackle seemingly endemic and chronic social problems, starting small and eventually spreading their good works throughout their nations and even globally.I recommend the book for anyone trying to improve their communities' health and welfare.

3-0 out of 5 stars Feel better about the world
The book has several good stories about good things going on in the world.It's mostly a collection of anectodal items on people in different countries and the challenges they faces.I was surprised on how sometimes such common sense ideas become revolutionary movements.Because the book covers so many countries and problem solvers you don't find out about the people that came before that failed.Its clear that these people are building on others but just now how.
5-0 out of 5 stars A few good people . . .
This account of one man's efforts to revise the defintion of "entrepreneur" demonstrates the capacity of what can be achieved from small beginnings.Bill Drayton has created a "consulting" firm that girdles the world.Creator and promoter of Ashoka, a foundation dedicated to social change, Drayton uses a highly selective arrangement to locate and encourage people desiring social change.Their efforts, rarely, if ever, depicted in either mainstream media or even specialty publications, are here explained and endorsed.As is Drayton's unorthodox methods.Yet those methods, and the people adapting them to local conditions, have been demonstrably successful.They need further study and application.

This book was almost like listening to a professional and highly experienced fund raiser give his unvarnished perspective on the motivations and realities of raising Mega Gifts. A nice peak into the human nature of those fortunate enough to be in a position to make large gifts to worthy and perhaps not so worthy causes. I found the book to be very helpful being new to the field of fund raising, though experienced in dealing with powerful and wealthy people in other professional settings. Not a "How To" book in the strictest sense, but more a what is and what motivates type of book. Worth the read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gives a Strategic View of Every Aspect of Fundraising
I picked up this book just as the board of directors of the local theater group sent me to set up a campaign to raise capital for a new building. All of a sudden I was faced with the idea of raising lots of money instead of just the small amounts we need to put on individual productions.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Complete Novice's Perspective
I am a complete novice and therefore I have looked at many books. Three things stood out about this book that I did not see anywhere else:
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I have bought and reviewed many books on building your own home. This is so far my favorite! It doesn't go into plumbing, wiring or even evacuation of the land, but what it does cover is clear and concise and I gained a ton of understanding reading this book. I basically knew nothing when I began and have never done any building...this book is a must have addition to your library if you are considering building your own home, not only that it is well illustrated, fun and easy to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book
this is so far the best house building book . It went into the details of house construction, one thing though is Habitat is a charitable organization therefore it does not go into too much business management stuff about O-B. and as most experienced O-B knows, the success or failure of a project is not the technical details but rather it is the budget and time control and management stuff. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awarded $250,000 Federal grant because of this book!
I was working at a NON-PROFIT organization and the departing Executive Director refused to submit a renewed grant request to a Federal agency.I was tasked to do it instead within one week.I had no support of the staff or Board of Directors because they did not have a clue of the process.I had never written a grant.So, I purchased this book and read it over the weekend.It was easy to read and made sense.I simply followed the book...identified a problem/an unmet need and a way to solve it.Thank you! The agency was awarded $250,000 to fund two of the full-time employees over a 2 year period.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this series!
Each one of the "Dummies" books has been so helpful, not only for me but for my daughter who is in high school.Everything from religion to business."Grant Writing for Dummies" is in keeping with the others:very informative, gets to the point for the layperson, and is done in a very easy-to-use format.So far, I haven't come across one book in this series that isn't helpful!

5-0 out of 5 stars I Can Do This!
I found this book extemely helpful and easy to read. It reduced the mystery of the grant world to something even I could understand. Based on the title, I have to say that I can do this! ... Read more
