Your book FUNDS TO THE RESCUE is the best most helpful book I have. Not only is it filled with ideas, it makes you think about other ways to raise money.
I will be looking into more of your books. THE DOGGIES AND KITTIES IN RESCUE THANK YOU!
~ Bob Fisher
Excellent resource for animal rescue groups. For rescue groups or anyone wanting to raise funds for animal-related events, Funds to the Rescue is an excellent resource. Various events are broken down in level of difficulty, planning time, upfront costs, and how many volunteers would be needed. It also provides a wide variety of activities from fun to more sedate gala-type events, allowing you to customize the event to your groups’ personality. In all, it’s an excellent investment for rescue and animal organizations needing to raise funds on a tight budget.
~ S. Stinson
Rescue takes money! This book contains lots of practical ideas for fund raising that can be used by animal advocate groups newly organized or well established. Some can be adapted to your own circumstances or situations, but this book serves as a springboard for more and more possibilities. It is a valuable source of information.
~ R. Chancey
Practical and Useful Advice. Not only does this book have great ideas for pet-related fundraising, it is also practical by rating each idea in terms of difficulty, up-front cost, personnel required, and time needed to plan. I also liked the idea of not only having a small committee to help, but creating goals and a budget for each fund raiser.
