In this sequel to the highly respected and practical 1993 book on fund raising, Worth and his group of authoritative contributors cover areas that did not even exist in this field in 1993, including the concepts of "principal gifts" and "benchmarking." They adapt strategies from Worth's earlier book and introduce many new ones to meet current challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. Comprising 31 chapters divided into ten logical parts, the authors provide a complete picture of this field, which is so important to leaders in higher education. Beginning with a strong base of knowledge, the authors then discuss topics ranging from raising funds from individuals; creating the campaign (accounting, long-range planning, leadership, the mission, kickoff); corporate and foundation support; traditions of giving; managing and supporting development programs; ethical concerns; and trends for the future. Michael Worth gives a great deal of attention to the environment in which those responsible for advancement in higher education have to work today. The book addresses new areas in the field that didn't exist when Worth wrote his first edition of this book in 1993. For example, the use of financial instruments in the planning of gift giving are more sophisticated, and business techniques have been tapped to improve management of programs and measurement of success. Part II of the book describes the underlying foundations of educational fund raising in three chapters, each written by an expert contributor. This section of the book describes the base of knowledge in the field (theory and research) and discusses the institutional plan and its relationship to the goals and objectives of the institution. Part V, covers corporate and foundation support, which is based on reasoned strategies and business plans and goals rather than on altruism and emotion, which can often be the foundation for individual giving. The book also includes a glossary and a selective bibliography.

Provides an intellectual framework for guiding prospective major donors in giving more effectively to higher education.Although most major gifts are profoundly motivated by charitable intentions, the noble impulse to give to higher education can quickly generate complicated choices. Which school? Which program? Under what terms or conditions? Even very talented people who have enjoyed exceptionally successful careers in business and other fields can become disoriented by academe_s idiosyncrasies. This book provides an intellectual framework for guiding prospective major donors in giving more effectively to higher education. It supplies some insight into the higher education sector, donor opportunities, the development process, and how to think about and get the most from a _negotiation_ with the institution of the donor_s choice. The insights and strategies are culled by a RAND research team mainly from interviews with development officers, institutional leaders, and donors themselves. Ultimately the giving process that works best for any donor will depend on his or her individual interests and needs. The best advice is to be clear on what effect the donor wants his or her gift to have, to seek as much information on the school/situation as possible, and to consult with an attorney and a good financial advisor at all stages of the giving process.

Achieving successful financial viability by broadening revenue sources is one of the most important issues facing colleges and universities today. Increasing operating costs, along with the reliance on traditional student tuition, government support, and philanthropy, are challenging universities. One way administration leaders and faculty are meeting this challenge is to establish supplemental revenue streams from a variety other sources such as: continuing education, credit and noncredit certificates, degree completion and upgrade programs, study abroad, domestic and international branch campuses, distance education, auxiliary services, technology transfer, and partnerships or alliances with other organizations. These types of activities, formerly considered secondary ventures, are now integral to lasting and responsible financial strategic planning. This monograph examines a wide variety of supplemental income options and opportunities, as well as examples of restructuring financial planning schema. While not negating the value of traditional college education, these new revenue sources in fact lead to greater institutional effectiveness. This is the 1st issue of the 41th volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Praise for Leadership for a Better World "What a powerful, very needed, and welcome sequel to A Social Change Model for Leadership Development Guidebook. It is a book for students, faculty, and everyone who engages in leadership for social change for a better world. It is an inspiring and liberating book in that it validates each one of us as we discover and practice the gifts we have been given." —Helen S. Astin, professor emerita of higher education and senior scholar, Higher Education Research Institute, UCLA "While simple schemes and models of leadership can have their appeal, the more challenging view proposed in Leadership for a Better World is not only more realistic but infinitely more fulfilling. This form of leadership calls us to look at our own deep yearnings and then respect those of others in the amazing global community of the twenty-first century." —Denny Roberts, assistant vice president for faculty and student services, Qatar Foundation "Positing that social change is at the heart of the leadership experience, Leadership for a Better World answers the question of 'leadership for what purpose?' Grounded in student experiences, this book includes student voices, stories, and contemporary case studies. Written in an informed and approachable tone, it provides a coherent set of guiding principles about how knowing oneself, meaningfully engaging with others, and adopting a systems perspective can promote the socially responsible leadership so needed in the world today." —Julie E. Owen, assistant professor, Leadership and Integrative Studies, George Mason University
