“This book is dedicated to the thousands of professional fundraisers and tireless volunteers who I have had the privilege of working with over the course of my career.” – George Stanois

Optimum Results

This book has captured what every fundraiser and volunteer needs to pay attention to for optimum results. I would encourage all fundraisers to include The Vigilant Fundraiser in their library but also to make sure that staff at all levels read it. Each of the 12 Steps could be a focus of discussion at your Board meetings or planning retreats.”

Must Read

This book is a must read both for newcomers to the field and veteran fundraisers, looking to keep their skills, methods and philosophies current and effective.”

A Tour de Force

George Stanois has edited a great new book, The Vigilant Fundraiser: 12 Steps to Fundraising Success. It’s a tour de force. As a direct response fundraiser, I was particularly taken with Chapter 7 by Liz Rejman. Pick up the book, read this chapter and make sure you’re doing the right thing. It all starts with the right list.”
