The Zen of Fundraising: 89 Timeless Ideas to Strengthen and Develop Your Donor Relationships

If all that has ever been said and written about the art and science of fundraising could be distilled down to just what really matters—what fundraisers everywhere need to know—there would be only a small number of true gems deserving of the description “nuggets of information.”Leading international fundraiser Ken Burnett, author of the classic Relationship Fundraising, has identified and defined 89 such nuggets that he presents here as The Zen of Fundraising—a fun-to-read, one-of-a-kind look into what makes donors tick and, more importantly, what makes them give. “Ken Burnett knows what donors want and how fundraisers can provide it. The Zen of Fundraising illustrates simple yet hard-earned lessons through which fundraisers can engage their donors as real partners, raising more money than ever. But to succeed, fundraisers need to aspire to greater levels of communication and donor engagement. This book shows us how.”–Chuck Longfield, founder and CEO, Target Software Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts “The refreshingly brief principles provide inspiration and learning to anyone striving for exceptional fundraising practice.”–Nicci Dent, director of fundraising, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, Sydney, Australia”A gentle blend of humour, personal experiences and practical examples (but underpinned by pure steel), this book makes the most compelling case yet for thinking seriously about donor relationships.”–Adrian Sargeant, professor of nonprofit marketing and fundraising, Bristol Business School, UK, and adjunct professor of philanthropy, Indiana University Center on Philanthropy

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

The world is going mobile. Everyone who saw images on Twitter coming from the battlefields of Syria knows how powerful mobile phones have become by better connecting our planet.

RWD has just announced plans to leverage this popular platform with custom web design concepts that are new and advanced for mobile devices. Many businesses and marketing companies have ignored this platform, giving way to a niche’ of hungry would-be clients who need products and services at the tip of their fingers. Imagine a Seattle site concept where a visitor is able to quickly shop for a new logo design, watch a video about the creative process, and / or read reviews for that product without having to open new browsers on the mobile device. You could also envision a Los Angeles web design where a visitor wants to invite several of their friends to an event without having to leave the interface.

RWD thinks that the possibilities for mobile integration is endless; thousands of sites tied together for the purpose of one unique consumer experience.

It is this type of business model that allows for such out of the box thinking. For instance, a Los Angeles web design that features street luge videos from local extreme sports enthusiasts. A second component could be the ability to stream music with the video and even combine a select audio track with purchase of the video, allowing the user to tailor their experience. This type of mobile custom web design experience will allow interaction on many levels. There could also be a game developer who enters the user into a drawing each time they pick their favorite new logo design.

“While it is not ultimately concrete how this integration will function,” says Brandon Anderson, co-founder of RWD. “We do not leave out any possibilities, especially those that are most engaging to visitors.” The core of this custom web design project came about when sales representatives from RWD noticed how little attention business executives give to their mobile presence. Meanwhile, other business owners are going as far as to create a new logo design just for their mobile interface so that it is optimal for that screen size.

While everyone has a different philosophy for mobile Internet presence; most sites are not as engaging as they could be, or are severely poor rendition of the original site.

Going back to the example of Los Angeles web design, there are over 59 Million people living in the state of California; most of whom are using mobile devices as much as twenty times more per day for personal use than other, less popular devices. From the information that is being presented by sources like CNN stating that mobile devices outpaced the popularity of Internet Explorer several months ago, the writing is already on the wall that the next big competitive market is right at the fingertips of business owners, many of whom do not want to compete with even moderate aggression.

Buy Central Europe: Enemies, Neighbors, Friends from [url removed]!

Throughout the Cold War era, the Iron Curtain divided Central Europe into a Communist East and a democratic West, and we grew accustomed to looking at this part of the world in bipolar ideological terms. Yet many people living on both sides of the Iron Curtain considered themselves Central Europeans, and the idea of Central Europe was 1 of the driving forces behind the revolutionary year of 1989 as well as the deterioration of Yugoslavia and its ensuing wars. Central Europe provides a broad overview and comparative analysis of key events in a historical region that encompasses contemporary Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, and Croatia. Starting with the initial conversion of the “pagan” peoples of the region to Christianity around 1000 A.D. and concluding with the revolutions of 1989 and the problems of post-Communist states today, it illuminates the distinctive nature and peculiarities of the historical development of this region as a cohesive whole.

Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) May 18, 2013

The automotive industry is supported by many secondary market sellers that provide preowned auto parts to vehicle owners and other buyers. Companies selling in this industry includes junk yards and salvage companies in most parts of the U.S. The company has developed a new way that these companies can distribute used auto parts to more buyers. New partnerships with junk yards in Tampa are now part of the expanded distribution set up by this company in Florida. More information about this new dealer network can be found online at

The cost savings that can be found through some secondary market sellers offering used parts is one example of the ways that parts buyers save money replacing parts. While a preowned part can be sold for less than a new one, many parts are taken from high mileage vehicles and could have a shortened lifespan.

The wear and tear and additional mileage placed on used parts is one factor considered during the process of research for a used part. The Auto Pros company has developed relationships with top suppliers able to provide lower than average mileage parts to buyers to assure higher quality components are available.

The new relationships with junk yards in Florida and others around the country have helped to build one of the largest databases currently found on the Internet for secondary market parts. The company built its unique search tool online that is now used by Internet buyers to locate parts at the touch of a button.

Along with this new search tool, a better method to generate quotes for parts in stock was developed this year. This quotation method is now used to issue current company prices as well as those from top junk yards and salvage companies in the U.S. All of this pricing data provides instant comparisons for parts buyers.

One of the new features created online this year is a video channel for buyers. This video channel is now one method offered to help introduce the new types of parts that are provided and exactly how to place orders using the new company ordering systems. These videos are expected to continue this year as one marketing strategy to continue building the company buyer network nationwide. The videos can be accessed online at

Questions about current inventory or dealer-to-dealer network buying can be forwarded directly to the company using the following contact details:

Auto Pros USA

1270 Crabb River Rd.

Richmond, TX 77469

(888) 230-1731

(713) 560-7017


The company now holds one of the largest databases of used auto parts that can be found through an offline or online seller. This company has created partnerships with top supply companies, third party sellers and salvage companies in the U.S. to help promote the sale of preowned parts to buyers. The quality of the parts that are issued from this online resource remains high quality to please buyers with all budgets. The company includes warranties, expedited shipping strategies and other incentives for each customer sale. This company has expanded its online offerings in 2013 and is expected to announce additional strategies before the close of the year.

San Francisco’s Fillmore District of the 1960s is known worldwide as the birthplace of psychedelic rock. But it was also a hotbed of modern electric blues, and it was the place where one of the genre’s top musical trailblazers, Joe Louis Walker, was born, raised and schooled. The award-winning guitar slinger, deeply soulful vocalist and gifted songwriter has been releasing groundbreaking music since 1986, but his career goes all the way back to the mid-1960s. As a 16-yearold, he was the house guitarist at San Francisco’s famed musical playground, The Matrix, where he played with or opened shows for everyone from Lightnin’ Hopkins (who once threw him off the stage) to Jimi Hendrix to Thelonious Monk. These ear-opening surroundings explain the ease with which Walker blends blues, rock, gospel, jazz and country, making it seem as if the walls between the styles never existed in the first place. The New York Times raves, “Walker is a singer with a Cadillac of a voice. He delivers no-nonsense, gutsy blues. His guitar solos are fast, wiry and incisive, moaning with bluesy despair.” According to Living Blues, he is “one of today’s modern musical masters.” Rolling Stone simply calls him “ferocious.”

Nowhere is that more apparent than in Walker’s Alligator Records debut, Hellfire. Produced by songwriter/drummer Tom Hambridge (producer of Buddy Guy’s two most recent Grammy-winning CDs, Skin Deep and Living Proof, as well as albums for Susan Tedeschi, George Thorogood and others), Hellfire burns with rock energy and intense blues feeling. Walker, who wrote or co-wrote seven of the CD’s eleven tracks, says it’s the hardest rocking and most deeply soulful album of his career. His blistering blues guitar playing and gospel-tinged vocals effortlessly blend throughout the album. From the psychedelic overtones of the title track (a harrowing and personal tale of the struggle of good versus evil) to the slow, simmering and pleading What’s It Worth to the Stones-y rocker Ride All Night, Hellfire is the work of a man possessed. Walker’s original showstopper Soldier For Jesus (featuring vocal harmonies from The Jordanaires, who also appear on Don’t Cry) fits seamlessly alongside the other selections, making perfect thematic sense in the tradition of Al Green, Marvin Gaye or Prince, who all successfully combined carnal desires and gospel devotion.

From 1975 to 1985 Walker performed nothing but gospel music, playing and singing as a member of The Spiritual Corinthians. During this period he attended San Francisco State University and earned two degrees, one in English and one in Music. While performing with The Spiritual Corinthians at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in 1985, Walker was inspired by the R&B, blues and rock music swirling around him. He decided he could no longer limit himself to gospel music and returned to playing the blues. On the strength of a demo tape sent to Hightone Records, Walker was signed to his first recording contract. In 1986, the label released Walker’s debut CD, Cold Is The Night. Firmly rooted in blues, gospel, R&B and rock, the album caught the attention of music fans around the country. Billboard called it “a contemporary blues find.” The San Francisco Chronicle said, “He expertly updates the timeless urban blues sound.”

Since then, Walker has released 23 more albums and two DVDs and toured worldwide. He’s won four Blues Music Awards, including the 2010 Album Of The Year Award for Between A Rock And A Hard Place (Stony Plain Records), and has been nominated for 43 more. He’s also recorded as a guest with some of the blues world’s best-known artists, including appearances on Grammy-winning records by B.B. King and James Cotton.

With each subsequent release, Walker’s audience continues to grow, as his touring schedule continues to expand. He’s played major European festivals, including Northsea Jazz Festival, Glastonbury, Notodden and Montreux, as well as festivals in Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Ireland, Turkey and Brazil. He’s appeared on national television, with performances on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, The Don Imus Show and Later With Jools Holland in the UK.

Fans and critics have been celebrating Walker for years. Blues Revue calls Walker “one of contemporary blues’ most dynamic and innovative musicians, releasing consistently exciting music. No matter what he’s singing, Walker’s approach is soulful, heartfelt and spellbinding.” Living Blues says, “His fretwork is indelibly stamped with his own trademark blend of emotional heat and impeccable precision—even at his most flamboyant, Walker sounds as if he’s playing ideas, not just notes.” A bluesman of immense talent and drive, Walker tours constantly, playing concerts and festivals across the globe. Raining fire with his guitar and spitting brimstone with his vocals, Hellfire begins a brand new chapter in Joe Louis Walker’s already legendary career.
