I read this over the past few months and then recently passed the CFRE Exam. I think the book was certainly helpful with the exam. It's written in an approachable manner and was informative.

Buku yang bagus untuk dijadikan landasan berpikir secara teoritis dalam proses penggalangan dana yang sistematis. Ide-ide untuk mengkampanyekan tujuan organisasi dalam mencari kandidat sumber pendanaan yang tepat akan sangat berguna bagi organisasi manapun yang sedang membutuhkan. Semoga dapat diaplikasikan oleh organisasi-organisasi nirlaba dengan tujuan yang mulia.
This is one of the best non-profit development texts I've read. I will keep it on my desk so I can refer to it often. The text includes both aspects of the philosophy of fundraising as well as pragmatic issues and examples of framework. If all of us in development followed this as a guide, the sector would be much more successful (and enormously competitive).

This book helped me pass my CFRE certification test, so I guess it did it's job. But the degree to which the editor and contributors bowed down to Hank Rosso was completely annoying throughout. No offense to Hank, but I wanted to gag.

I read this book for a class 5 years and I still use it for advice at work and graduate papers.
