"People love Kim′s fundraising wisdom and her keen ability to connect fund development with what matters in our communities. I always recommend Fundraising for Social Change to organizations in need of a book with ideas they can use right away as well as information about how to build a successful long–term fundraising program."
Steve Lew, senior projects director, CompassPoint Nonprofit Services

"I used Fundraising for Social Change as a textbook for my class for many years and often recommend it to grassroots organizations as a primer for developing a fundraising strategy. Kim′s years of experience and her own broad knowledge of the field give the book heft and credibility. Her pragmatism and sense of humor make it readable and engaging."
Maria Mottola, executive director, New York Foundation

"The information and inspiration we have received from Kim Klein′s books have been key to our grassroots fundraising efforts. Some people go back to Proust; I go back to her specifics about how to write a fundraising plan that actually works!"
Bob Fulkerson, state director, Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada (PLAN)

"Kim makes me a believer again whenever I am in her presence be it through her spoken or written word. While she provides the basics of raising money in an accessible form, what I truly value is the deep sense of purpose she reawakens in me as a fundraiser–activist."
Miguel Gavaldón, fundraising coach and trainer, Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training

"Kim Klein′s Fundraising for Social Change was the first fundraising book I ever owned, many editions ago, and remains the most comprehensive, practical, and accessible resource for grassroots fundraisers. Reading this book is like having a smart, loyal friend whispering in your ear, ′Yes, you can do this. Here′s how.′"
Andy Robinson, author, Train Your Board (and Everyone Else) to Raise Money
