More than once when I was growing up my dad told me that I’d “bitten off more than I could chew.”
I’m afraid I didn’t grow out of that tendency.
Writing my fundraising book certainly fits in that “bitten off too much” category.
About 4 years ago, I realized that what we were doing at Oneicity for our clients should be distilled into a book to help more people than we could have as clients.
I thought to myself: “How hard could that be? Lots of people write books. I’ll write one, too.”
I even managed to come up with a title and outline. And about 150 words. And then we got busier. And busier. And busier.
Oh and I procrastinated.
Then I got distracted.
And when I thought about the book I was really discouraged.
Then in 2017, one of my “rise” goals was to finish the book. And I did.
It was worth the struggle because it’s a book that will help you if you are a fundraiser or nonprofit professional.
My idea originally began as the “No Thank You” Revolution and finally landed as:
Donoricity: Raise More Money for Your Nonprofit with Strategies Your Donors Crave
That’s right Donoricity.
You pronounce it like electricity, simplicity or, of course, Oneicity.
I’m pretty pleased with it, and I think you’ll love it if you live in the fundraising or donor development world.
Donoricity will help you if:
- You’re feeling that your communications aren’t connecting with your donors.
- You’re sick of fundraising that’s embarrassing.
- You’re weary of programs and systems that don’t really fit you.
- You’re wondering if there was something missing from your fundraising efforts.
- You’re thinking that there just had to be a better way.
Donoricity was born in the trenches of fundraising and marketing. It’s real-world tested. It works.
The solutions you’ll find in Donoricity will help organizations from start-up to huge.
You can get the first chapter on audio, see my video and find out more at Donoricity.com.
And for the very first time on our blog, I’m going to offer something for sale. Beginning today, the Kindle version of Donoricity is just 99 cents.
Monday, January 22nd, the price goes up to $9.99. Amazon will even let you sample it before you spend the 99 cents!
So for 99 cents you can see for yourself and improve your donor relationships. It’s a good value. And I think you’ll find it refreshing.
