Fund Raising Cover
Fund Raising
for Social Service Agencies
by Roberta Nelson-Walker (now known as Roberta Klein)

Spend your time improving services, not cutting them

Is your organization covering operational expenses and expanding funding sources as effectively as possible? Is your board getting better and better at raising agency visibility, maintaining accurate databases, and using volunteers effectively?

Find out what you can do as the government cuts budgets and donors tighten their purse strings in an uncertain financial climate. Learn the best ways to fund your programs through a continually expanding base of financial supports.

Fund Raising for Social Service Agencies is a gold mine of proven fund-raising strategies that today's most successful organizations use to plan their future. These include:

  • attracting major donors
  • organizing capital campaigns
  • developing planned giving
  • establishing foundations
  • social venture philanthropy
  • special events

Author Roberta Nelson-Walker's work in nonprofit organizations includes fund raising, development and executive management. She has helped to establish several public charities, public support foundations and private foundations. She has also worked as an individual and family financial advisor.
