Bob Hartsook's fourth, and perhaps most insightful, book is motivating, entertaining, and right on target. It's true, as Bob says, nobody wants to give money away. But it's just as true that people want to invest in making positive changes in the lives of others. That's why philanthropy works. Through stories, humor and more than two decades of fundraising experience, Bob explores the nine fundraising truths essential to success. As an added treat, Nobody Wants to Give Money Away! is filled with illustrations by Mark Litzler, whose clever fundraising cartoons appear in The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The Wall Street Journal, Barrons and The Harvard Business Review.
