Fundraising is perceived as a difficult and burdensome task in the nonprofit scene of South Korea. This is because the reality of the nonprofit sector makes it difficult for organizations to actively support fundraising activities. Many nonprofit activists fail to build an identity as a fundraiser and are swept into the sea of the field work without learning the essential relationship between fundraising and nonprofit activities and the basic procedures and methods of fundraising.

To solve these problems, the author, who has been a fundraising consultant for more than 20 years, explains the principles of fundraising in an easy and interesting way by re-telling the abundant cases that he personally experienced at the fundraising site as stories. In this book, he addresses everything from the value and focus of fundraising to practical topics such as preparation for fundraising, major gifts and grassroots fundraising, special events and fundraising ethics. While the fundraising cases introduced before were mainly focused on projects or programs, this book places the donors at the center. This is because bringing change and maturity to the donor’s life and attitude is as much a part of fundraising’s impact on society as is social change through the successful performance of projects.

The stories shared in this book will provide an opportunity to reduce trial and error in the field and find ways to move towards donor-centered fundraising. Furthermore, it will serve as a foundation for creating true success stories that lead to new learning and challenges.
