LANO's General and Associate members receive free access to these and more than 100 other current titles, thanks to a generous grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation

And now with this new offering, Friends of LANO can download the same essential nonprofit management resources at an exclusive discount rate. 

In the first volume of the CausePlanet Fundraising Series, you'll find spot-on wisdom, critical points, details and quotes, and an insightful author Q&A relating to the following titles:  

  • The End of Fundraising: Raise More Money by Selling Your Impact by Jason Saul is an innovative approach that helps you create powerful value propositions to increase your leverage and improve the success of your pitches to funders. This book flips the fundraising paradigm and will have you identifying new prospects you may have originally dismissed.
  • In Storytelling for Grantseekers: A Guide to Creative Nonprofit Fundraising by Cheryl Clarke, you'll learn why crafting a persuasive summary, packaging a compelling narrative story, and using a short story approach with letters of inquiry are the keys to securing your grant. Clarke also explores how storytelling can be applied to other forms of fundraising.
  • Donor-Centered Planned Gift Marketing by Michael Rosen is a thoughtful examination of who makes planned gifts, how to assess your organization's potential for planned giving, and how to integrate planned gift marketing into your existing efforts.
