Here’s how the ultra-rich make sure you can’t figure out how much money they really have:
They figure out ways to evade taxes entirely
They use offshore accounts and tax havens (although the government is clamping down on this)
They put assets in other people’s names (usually with trusts for family members)
They might even create shell companies and layer them to make it hard to follow the trail
They never ever reveal how much they really make to anyone no matter what
Feeling like your job is getting harder because donor expectations have changed and competition for the charitable dollar is growing?
Finding that the old orthodoxies and conventions espoused by so-called experts in online echo-chambers and at conferences don’t work anymore?
Want to help more people make impact by facilitating their acts of philanthropy but feel like too many obstacles keep getting in your way?
Then this book is for you.
Engagement Fundraising was developed from the perspective of a donor who discovered firsthand that the impersonal, spray-and-pray approaches of his beloved charity were not only offensive but also wasteful and ineffective. So he took action. And now, you can too.
