Treating your donors as members of a community rather than as individual units MATTERS! Human beings have limited interest in supporting others by giving money. However, they have an intense interest in supporting others through sharing resources. In fact, there are 6 Key Resource Categories that you can count on donors giving from if you ask. What category they choose to give from will simply depend on who you are and what you are asking for at the time! Traditional fundraising tools and practices focus on leveraging donor PSYCHOLOGY, the inner workings of an individualÕs mind, and as a result consistently only gain access to 17% of what a donor community is interested in giving. Understanding the power of donor SOCIOLOGY, the dynamic workings of peopleÕs minds when they live in community with others changes everything! Knowing more about these principles can help you gather more resources than you ever thought possible!

Money for the Asking explores the basics of fundraising for music library professionals. Music libraries face many challenges today, including shrinking budgets. Fundraising is one way to increase a library’s resources, but few books address fundraising opportunities specifically for music libraries. In this concise volume Peter Munstedt provides practical advice for music librarians who want to initiate fundraising. Based on his depth of experience, the author explains the importance of promoting a library’s needs, which can be critical in establishing fundraising efforts. Working with individual donors is essential for any fundraising program. The book differentiates four essential steps that development professionals employ when working with donors, including identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. There is also an explanation of the various types of donations, such as gifts in kind, monetary gifts, endowments, and planned giving. Obtaining resources through grants is another significant aspect of fundraising. The book covers corporation, foundation, and government grants within the context of music libraries. Other methods of raising money are also described, including several kinds of fundraising events, such as benefit concerts, book sales, as well as other public and private events. While encouraging music libraries to pursue fundraising, the author also cautions about several subtle issues that consist of hidden costs, internal politics, and ethical concerns. This book reveals principles in the professional development world as seen through the eyes of a music librarian. The author explains real-life experiences in a music library setting, including case studies from his library. Also provided are examples of fundraising web pages from various other music libraries. The book reveals the positive effects and actual benefits that fundraising can bring to a music library. Money really is there for the asking.

The need to produce food without the destructive chemical horrors of much modern farming, for an intelligent use of dwindling natural resources and for humane forms of production is universal, the practice is limited. This book is an account of one, large, instance of success in practice. Twenty-five years ago, Winin Pereira, a nuclear physicist abandoned academia to start a co-operative farm at Alonde in a tribal area north of Bombay. The group experienced, and finally discarded, all the false hopes and promises of Western originated forms of development: ploughs that ploughed too deep, irrigation systems that lowered water tables, fertilizers and pesticides which managed the earth and became so expensive that poorer farmers were dispossessed. Instead they learnt from the adivasai, or tribal people, who have nurtured or been nurtured by foresets for millennia, ways of applying popular knowledge to contemporary problems. This book is a combination of Pereira's record of achievement of sustainable livelihoods and an account of the farm and its effect on the India around it by a leading British journalist. Originally published in 1991

They chanted. ‘Release Mandela’. But for three young individuals, their motives are their own… During a London Anti-Apartheid march, the Daily Mirror reporter Harry meets the impassioned Petronella, a communist activist. Alongside her is Josiah Makoni, a man spearheading his own cause to free his people from colonial Rhodesia.

Why is this woman so intriguing when her political agenda is in direct contrast to her family background? The granddaughter of an English magnate and daughter of a privileged white Rhodesian farmer. Playing with Harry, it becomes clear that Petronella and Josiah are lovers, driving Harry ever more to win her over. But for Josiah, his desire and passion are for his land. To break free of white oppression. To recruit freedom fighters and take back the power of his country, Zimbabwe. No matter the unthinkable… The Best of Times is the ninth episode in the Brigandshaw Chronicles. It’s the best of times for some, but the start of a bitter war to come.

A man, who has lived in dysfunctional homes, endured child and sexual abuse, ostracism and racism, holds a dismal view of the world and himself. These life experiences shape Hakeem Lewis’ perceptions of reality, and thus, positively and negatively influence his behavior. For better or worse, he strives to escape a distressful past. Unfortunately, his methods fail to permanently cure him of sustained psychological damage. The most shameful and painful secrets possess the power to bind and oppress. Few dare to divulge their darkest feelings and desires, for they fear criticism. Trepidation and ignorance become catalysts for persisting self-destructive behavior and socio-environmental destruction. Hakeem discovers that his coping methods have led him down a path of addictive, reckless, and immoral behavior despite an educational and spiritual background. Hakeem must decide whether to continue on his present course, or seek the psychological and spiritual guidance that he needs to flee the darkness, which surrounds him. The question is, does Hakeem possess the desire and courage to make the lifestyle adjustments necessary for a brighter future? He must also determine which is most important to his spiritual growth: the norms of the world or a relationship with God.
