About This Book
Most conversations about fundraising focus on receipts, outreach, stewardship, and strategy. But very few discuss building the confidence to make that first ask. The Fundraiser: Fundraisers Aren't Born, They're Built answers the big questions on everyone's mind: What do I do when someone says no? Who do I call? How do I keep fundraising?
Author Meredith White guides readers on the daunting task of facing one's fears and gaining the confidence to raise money through personal stories and experiences as well as anecdotes from professionals.
The Fundraiser is a non-fiction book that speaks to fundraising novices and anyone afraid of talking to strangers. It's for those who are looking to level up and make that big (or even small) fundraising ask for the first time. You don't have to be afraid of fundraising because you are a fundraiser.
Meredith White is a veteran political fundraiser with over a decade of experience. From PACs, senators and presidential campaigns to Capitol Hill and corporate suites, she decided to put her knowledge and experience to good use in her first book The Fundraiser: Fundraisers Aren't Born, They're Built. Armed with the right tools and her enthusiastic personality, she believes that her guide can make even the shyest introvert become an expert fundraiser.
When not writing or working, White loves to travel, juggle multiple craft projects, spend time with friends, and is perpetually reminding everyone to vote.
