Philanthropy in a Flat World: Inspiration Through Globalization is your insider guide to meeting and exceeding your nonprofit’s goals for decades to come.

I haven’t yet had the opportunity to read this just released book – but having worked on a project with author Jon Duschinsky in Amsterdam a few months back, I can say that not only is he energetic and motivating, but he truly understands the art of fundraising.

From the Inside Flap

According to Thomas Friedman, our world is now flat – with lowered trade and political barriers and unimagined technical advances that have made it possible to do business, or almost anything else, instantaneously with billions of other people across the planet – but what does that mean for your nonprofit organization, whether it’s new or established? In today’s “borderless” world, your nonprofit must become more flexible, adaptable, and international in approach to help it survive the coming challenges.

Philanthropy in a Flat World: Inspiration Through Globalization is a compellingly practical handbook for your nonprofit on what a flat world means for you and, more importantly, for your donors, as well as on how you can become equipped to deal with this new global society. Engaging fundraisers in an open, honest, and challenging look at the forces at work in creating the global philanthropic world of tomorrow, author and internationally renowned fundraising consultant Jon Duschinsky shows you how your nonprofit can:

  • Understand what the Flat Philanthropic World is and what it means for your organization
  • Chart your own course in today’s world of instant information transfer and of media power and concentration
  • Mobilize capital for good
  • Compete against other Flat World fundraisers: the media, corporations, and retailers
  • React to and grow with the opportunities presented by the Flat Philanthropic World

Offering candid advice to help you chart your nonprofit’s course in realizing what will make your organization different and attract donors to it, Philanthropy in a Flat World: Inspiration Through Globalization holds the tools and keys you as a fundraiser need to be effective in the world of tomorrow.
