I have to give you a testimonial… I tried something new to evoke my board members’ passion for the cause. I asked them:  what legacy to you want to leave from serving on this board?  Well, you would have thought I had opened the flood gates. One of the Executive Committee told a very poignant story of his cousin dying in hospice . . .  This was the best meeting we’ve had so far on with this group in the last 3 years I’ve been here.

Thanks for your wisdom and support! This ain’t brain surgery, but it surely helps to be able to refer to a level-headed practitioner who literally wrote the book with practical advice!  Your book is beautifully written and has been an excellent guide for me.  Thanks for keeping the flame burning brightly.

When I read Gail’s book, I was excited about the great ideas for engaging my board in a non-threatening, mission-driven way.  What I didn’t fully appreciate initially, but have very much come to value, is that my own adoption of mission-based development work has made my job ten times more FUN….at no cost to a successful bottom line.  Gail’s RIGHT!”

I have just finished reading your book, Fired-Up Fundraising. Your refreshing approach in laying out the basics and showing them to those of us who have seats on a board but don’t fully understand the needs of our organization is a voice that should be heard by all.  Again, many thanks for the enlightenment!
