Stimulating and educational. Kent's experience is hands on. He tackles the subject from both the perspective of the donor and the person(s) seeking funds.This book is proving very useful for our local Performing Arts Guild.

  So very practical...it worked! , 11/01/2003
Reviewer: James W. Lauer, M.D.
This gem was immediately useful for a silent auction that was in the early planning stage for a non-profit counseling and education program in Grand Junction, Colorado. With Kent's ideas and specific guides for such a fund-raiser, $2,000 was realized for the agency...beyond any thing of this sort previously attempted. And, the other sections of this book have provided further ideas for the next fiscal year of this agency.
