It is never too early to plan your giving year. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day. On Tuesday December 3, 2013 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The idea for the campaign sprung from Henry Timms, deputy executive director of the Jewish community center 92nd Street Y, and Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation. New York’s 92nd Street Y has been the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project, and providing #GivingTuesday a home. Henry Timms has also been instrumental in producing the annual Social Good Summit, in partnership with Mashable and the UN Foundation, which has opened up the UN Week conversation to over 120,000 across the world. Earlier in his career, Henry oversaw corporate strategy for Arts & Business, one of HRH The Prince of Wales’ charities, and helped to launch the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.

Many would have you believe that raising $1 million or more is complex, requires countless meetings, an outsized pool of prospects, and the costly aid of a consultant. Andrea Kihlstedt punctures that notion by showing that intelligent board members, volunteers, and staff have within them the skills and common sense to make it happen. Kihlstedt's 10 steps will and won't surprise you. If you have experience, you already know the importance of a campaign's infrastructure: the need to refine your case, identify the right chair, and adhere to the proven sequence of soliciting. But what WILL surprise you, and where the strength of the book lies, is the fresh way Kihlstedt, herself a consultant with some 27 years of experience, helps you line up your ducks. Andrea Kihlstedt is well known as a writer, coach and trainer in fundraising. Over the past 28 years, her clients have ranged from tiny start-up organizations to large national institutions.
