I’d recommend Tom Ahern’s book, ‘Seeing Through a Donor’s Eyes’ to anyone struggling to know where to start when writing a case for support.  It’s an excellent read for anyone struggling to write a case that grabs attention and hits the right fundraising messages.  Even if you’ve written many before (as I have), it helps to refresh your thinking about the practicalities of writing a good case for support, as well as the creative process. In it, he outlines how to go about drafting a good case for support – including who you should speak with before you start; different types of cases (shopping, internal and external), as well as providing examples from different non-profits.

                                                                                                                              Marc Pitman’s Ask Without Fear! is a simple guide, packed full of easy to understand fundraising tools and secrets.  It’s available in various formats starting at a very affordable $14.95.  Just click on the image to view.
