"Global Fundraising is filling an important gap in our knowledge of philanthropy with global perspectives. It provides fair coverage of regions that have evolving characteristics and shifting trends of philanthropy as is the case in the Arab region, caused by developments resulting from the Arab Spring. Definitely an important book to have."
Dr. Atallah Kuttab
Chairman, SAANED for Philanthropy Advisory, Arab Region
Capturing the heart of global fundraising is a multi-layered complexity. After being part of Penelope's case study, and then reading her collective findings, I can wholeheartedly say that 'Global Fundraising' captures these multiple layers quite thoroughly. This book summarizes the importance of global fundraising in a thoughtful and insightful way, while also allowing the reader to easily digest a true collection of experiences from global fundraisers themselves. Penelope has mastered the art of taking the theory of global fundraising and illustrating through a series of actual case studies how the rules of worldwide philanthropy have changed over time. Breaking down the book by region is a fantastic way to show the impact per country and more importantly, how our donors can positively influence change through their generous giving. A must-read for all fundraisers alike.

It is an asset to the nonprofit world, an invaluable resource for any fundraiser who is willing to cross national borders and for those who would like to know more about other countries' trends and find new ideas to implement.
