"Kim Klein has been a guru to social justice fundraisers for
many years. She shows us by her efforts, and not just by her words,
that it is possible to raise the money you need, no matter how
marginal you feel or are considered in the larger society."
?Rinku Sen, executive director, Applied Research Center, New York, New York; author, Stir It Up and The Accidental American
"With wisdom gleaned from over 30 years of experience, Kim Klein
delivers her can-do message with wit, grace, and unabashed
optimism?even in times like these. She taught us at JVP that
there is still plenty of money out there; it's just unevenly
distributed. Her consistent message: people give because we ask.
Poking fun at money taboos, assuring us that fundraising is not
that hard, Kim reminds us that the system is held in place by
money: if we don't learn about it, we can't change it!"
?Penny Rosenwasser, National Board, Jewish Voice for Peace, Oakland, California
"This book is an extraordinary combination of philosophy and how
to, all aimed at helping nonprofits build a movement for social
justice. Kim distills three decades of fundraising and organizing
experience into a book that will be helpful for novice and veteran
