In this sequel to the highly respected and practical 1993 book on fund raising, Worth and his group of authoritative contributors cover areas that did not even exist in this field in 1993, including the concepts of "principal gifts" and "benchmarking." They adapt strategies from Worth's earlier book and introduce many new ones to meet current challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. Comprising 31 chapters divided into ten logical parts, the authors provide a complete picture of this field, which is so important to leaders in higher education. Beginning with a strong base of knowledge, the authors then discuss topics ranging from raising funds from individuals; creating the campaign (accounting, long-range planning, leadership, the mission, kickoff); corporate and foundation support; traditions of giving; managing and supporting development programs; ethical concerns; and trends for the future. Michael Worth gives a great deal of attention to the environment in which those responsible for advancement in higher education have to work today. The book addresses new areas in the field that didn't exist when Worth wrote his first edition of this book in 1993. For example, the use of financial instruments in the planning of gift giving are more sophisticated, and business techniques have been tapped to improve management of programs and measurement of success. Part II of the book describes the underlying foundations of educational fund raising in three chapters, each written by an expert contributor. This section of the book describes the base of knowledge in the field (theory and research) and discusses the institutional plan and its relationship to the goals and objectives of the institution. Part V, covers corporate and foundation support, which is based on reasoned strategies and business plans and goals rather than on altruism and emotion, which can often be the foundation for individual giving. The book also includes a glossary and a selective bibliography.

This book is for those wishing to make a major gift to an institution of higher education who are looking for an intellectual framework for deciding how much to give to which school, for which purposes, over what periods of time, or with which (if any) restrictions. Higher education fundraising has grown increasingly sophisticated, but higher education philanthropy has remained in large part an amateur exercise. A donor can give an institution any amount for any purpose at any time, but there are some subtleties concerning the gifts that are most effective in achieving the donors purpose. Some gifts cannot be accepted; an example would be gifts not available to underrepresented minorities. Other gifts may not be accepted because accepting the gift is prohibitively expensive. Higher education philanthropy can be viewed as a formal social exchange between an individual or family donor. The most common situation is for donors to make a gift and trust the institution's leadership to identify the schools needs and priorities. Other donors, those with an agenda to satisfy or those who may be categorized as social entrepreneurs, want to fund something that may not be a top priority for the school. In this situation, a donation may involve negotiation. Ultimately the process that works best for a donor depends on his or her individual interests and needs. One appendix describes additional resources for donors, and the second contains the interview protocol used to gather information for this report. (Contains 20 figures, 6 tables, and 60 references.)
