Higher education fundraisers today are well aware of an important fact: Philanthropic efforts are no longer local or even regional-they must now be international.
Across Frontiers: New International Perspectives on Educational Fundraising addresses this new fundraising reality by providing practical, stimulating and thought-provoking advice for fundraisers in the educational sector.
“To thrive in the rapidly changing and complex world of global philanthropy, we as professional fundraisers must go beyond traditional ways of thinking and practice; we need to think hard, to innovate and to actively—and constantly—learn about the forces that are changing the whole landscape of fundraising and philanthropy,” write volume editors John Mc Loughlin and Jane Joo Park.
Across Frontiers taps into expertise from around the world.
There is no cookie-cutter approach to fundraising in this new environment. Across Frontiers will help you work and think about your profession in new ways.
