I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who has to raise money. Andrea Kihlstedt understands what makes people give and shares her insights from years of consulting. She gives plenty of wonderful, practical real-world examples of what works and why. Her step-by-step approach is clear and concise and immediately empowers even the inexperienced fundraiser. Read this book — you will know exactly what to do and how to do it. And you will love her insights, humor and can-do spirit.” Jane Keiffer

I have had the privilege of working under Andrea Kihlstedt’s expert guidance. She is is a brilliant strategist who knows the right levers to pull and the right buttons to push to help an organization develop “a culture of generosity” (her phrase). All of her enthusiasm, big-heartedness, optimism, and adventurousness are captured in this accessible book. Much of my consulting practice consists of teaching non profit organizations what I have learned from Andrea, and I am delighted to have her wisdom encapsulated in this gem.” Paul Jolly, Jump Start Growth
