18 new and forthcoming books for fundraisers

first_img8. In Defence of PhilanthropyDr Beth Breeze at the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent has another book in the works – In Defence of Philanthropy.My book has the Ronseal-inspired title ‘In Defence of Philanthropy’. Do you have ‘Philanthropy Revolution’ by Lisa Greer on your list? It’s a painful read, a big-donor perspective on poor fundraising practice. But I def recommend it, we need to know how asking is perceived.— Beth Breeze (@UKCPhilanthropy) November 12, 2020 16. Making the AskHow do you ask the right people for the right money in the right way? In Making the Ask: The artful science of high-value fundraising Bernard Ross and Clare Segal share their approach – used by major fundraising organisations from UNHCR in the Middle East to MSF in the US and from UK’s Oxford University to MEF Museum in Argentina – which has been used to secure gifts up to $110m in a single ask. 4. Good business: the talk, fight, win way to change the worldBill Novelli’s book Good Business comes out in March 2021. It is based on his experience with founding and growing Porter Novelli, the global PR agency for social impact, and his CEO role at AARP, the US nonprofit. He aims to show “that you can make a positive social difference regardless of what business you are in or where you are in your career”. 3. Philanthropy: from Aristotle to ZuckerbergPaul Vallely’s book is a huge work (in significance as well as physical size), covering the development and significance of philanthropy through the ages. 18 new and forthcoming books for fundraisers You can also see her in conversation with Louise Morris:Worth them attending @summitfundraise webinar with Lisa too…https://t.co/rofVjoywnB— Rory Traynor (@rory_fundraiser) November 12, 2020 Find more fundraising books at Bookshop.org She backs up her views with dozens of interviews with donors, nonprofit professionals and academics in the field.She believes that giving can be “saved” and offers suggestions on how charities and fundraisers can adopt new approaches that yield more “trusting, authentic partnerships that can be sustained long-term”.You can listen to Lisa Greer talk about the book and the issues she raises in a podcast:Have you ever approached a new donor and thought, “I wish I knew what they were thinking?”.

Give it a listen!https://t.co/Nio8hsUDL9— Whole Whale (@WholeWhale) November 7, 2020 11. Rebel IdeasRebel Ideas is a “journey through the science of team performance. It draws on psychology, economics, anthropology and genetics, and takes lessons from a dazzling range of case-studies, including the catastrophic intelligence failings of the CIA before 9/11, a communication breakdown at the top of Mount Everest, and a moving tale of deradicalisation in America’s deep South.”Author Matthew Syed argues that “individual intelligence is no longer enough; that the only way to tackle these complex problems is to harness the power of our ‘cognitive diversity’.” The above list contains affiliate links to Bookshop.org, which UK Fundraising partners with because it shares its income with local and independent bookshops. 7. Fundraising strategy book in the worksFundraising consultants Dr Claire Routley and Richard Sved have confirmed to UK Fundraising that they are “just finishing the final chapter of a book on fundraising strategy”. Claire added; ” It’s a labour of love, and general strategy nerdery!”UK Fundraising will share more details in due course.We’re just finishing the final chapter of a book on fundraising strategy – it’s a labour of love, and general strategy nerdery!— Dr Claire Routley (@ClaireyJaneR) November 12, 2020 Debra Allcock Tyler’s new book from the Directory of Social Change focuses on the practicalities of being an effective charity trustee. If relationships between trustees and between senior managers and trustees aren’t right, the charity can quickly find “you’ll have a battle on the board”.In true Allcock Tyler style she features a different ABBA tune as the theme for each chapter.  Did we miss a recently published or forthcoming fundraising title?

Uncharted: how to map the futureBusinesswoman Margaret Heffernan explores the people and organisations who aren’t daunted by uncertainty.“Ranging freely through history and from business to science, government to friendships, this refreshing book challenges us to resist the false promises of technology and efficiency and instead to mine our own creativity and humanity for the capacity to create the futures we want and can believe in.” 15.

GSEs Report Coronavirus-Driven Income Loss

The company also pointed to lower gains on single-family asset disposition activity of $0.6 billion.”Freddie Mac’s first quarter was marked by unprecedented challenges to our country, our business and our markets—and I am very proud of how we have responded,” said David M. Brickman, CEO, Freddie Mac. “We are offering relief to millions of homeowners and renters, supporting our customers in new and vital ways, and serving as a stabilizing force for the housing finance system. Through these efforts, we are continuing to fully serve our mission.”Meanwhile, Fannie Mae reported net income of $461 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared with net income of $4.4 billion for the fourth quarter of 2019. Like Freddie Mac, Fannie reported that the decrease in net income was due primarily to a shift from credit-related income to credit-related expense driven by the economic dislocation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.As part of the company’s report, Fannie Mae also noted that it has implemented new policies to enable the company’s single-family and multifamily loan servicers to better assist borrowers and renters impacted by COVID-19, including requiring servicers to provide forbearance to single-family borrowers reporting they are experiencing a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 outbreak for up to 180 days.“Fannie Mae is committed to fulfilling its vital role in helping our customers, our servicers, and the market as a whole manage through this period of uncertainty,” said Fannie Mae CEO Hugh R. Frater. “We recognize that more work lies ahead to help borrowers, renters, and the housing market recover. I want to give special thanks to the people of Fannie Mae, who have stepped up to their mission with characteristic grit and humility, and with their rock-solid commitment to provide a sound foundation for our country’s housing market.”  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Secondary Market Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
