About the Author
Val Jones is the personal fundraising coach we all wish we had...and Nonprofit Hero is the book every new board member should read.
— Jean Chatzky, NBC Today Show financial editor and AARP financial advisor
Simple, yet brilliant, Nonprofit Hero banishes the fundraising we all dread (cold calls, begging, etc.). Instead, you’ll tap your core beliefs, connecting with compelling authenticity to those who share your vision.
— Barbara Silzle, executive director, The Philadelphia Cultural Fund
An honest and refreshing approach to fundraising. Jones demystifies the process—demonstrating how everyone, including volunteers, can experience the “thrill of ‘yes’”.
— Eileen R. Heisman, president & CEO, National Philanthropic Trust
