New edition of the Handbook of Philanthropy

Spring 2015

NAIS’s Handbook of Philanthropy at Independent Schools, Fourth Edition, is now available in the NAIS bookstore. The book, edited by fund-raising veteran Helen Colson, includes chapter contributions from more than a dozen independent school practitioners. It is designed to serve the fund-raising newcomer - with a focus on the basics in such key areas as annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, and capital campaigns - while offering veteran advancement professionals a fresh focus on fund-raising analysis, advancement services, international fund-raising, and the use of new media.
