The Volunteer Fundraiser’s Handbook –

Book Reviews

“This book has come at an important time ……..Jimmy James’ depth of experience as a professional fundraiser means his advice is practical, easy to follow and rooted in experience. I am sure this handbook will be a useful guide and reference point as you plan your own fundraising strategy.”
Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive NCVO



“This excellent little book give a great detail of information to those who cannot afford to retain or employ professional workers to fundraise. The book takes you through all stages of charity fundraising, from establishing a charity, the planning and preparation of a fundraising campaign and chapters dealing with most aspects of fundraising, and even some you may not have otherwise thought of.  It is easy to use, packed full of transferable information for your organisation and also contains templates that you can use for sample gift and covenant giving. It includes useful checklists and each chapter has useful appendices to use as a toolkit to help you to develop your own fundraising strategy.

It is easy to use, easy to read and is highly practical as a one-stop-shop to give you a comprehensive guide to fundraising. It is also current for the financial circumstances that most of us in the cultural sector find ourselves in. The book is only £9.99 on Amazon and is well worth the investment!”



“If you have ever wanted to raise funds for your school, church, village hall or local community group, you will know that it is a lot more complicated than you may have first thought.   This little book is an excellent guide, and will lead you through the entire process, with clear explanations of everything from how to set up a charity, how to plan and deliver a fundraising campaign, and excellent advice on how to approach all the major sources of funds that might be out there for you.  There is also advice on tax reclaiming and how to do public relations.  Very practical, this book is a real treasure-trove for all would-be volunteer fund-raisers.
