    Filthy Rich
    How to Turn Your Nonprofit Fantasies into Cold,...
    When FILTHY RICH was first published in 1989, there were close to one million nonprofit organizations competing for cash to fund projects. Today, that number has more than doubled, and the competition for funding is as fierce as ever. While nonprofits' philanthropical outlook may distinguish them from their for-profit counterparts, they still have to keep an eye on the bottom line if they are to keep their projects funded and successful. In this revised and updated guide to running a nonprofit, Dr. Richard Steckel explains that, just like the most visionary venture capitalist, nonprofits must channel their dreams of grandeur into a goal-oriented, entrepreneurial organization. Follow Dr. Steckel's realistic, step-by-step plan to develop a strong vision, get your message heard, and make money to keep your nonprofit alive!

    Cold Cash for Warm Hearts
    101 Best Social Marketing Initiatives
    This book is the most complete compendium of cause-related marketing ideas in print. Dr. Steckel and his team have compiled hundreds of ideas that corporations and nonprofits have used successfully. The initiatives feature partnerships that Dr. Steckel helped to forge during the past 20 years. Marketing, advertising, fundraising, fund development and other creative professionals will find the "idea yeast" here to develop outstanding cause-related marketing plans. This is not a "how-to," but rather a valuable reference guide and creativity booster. The strategies can be employed separately, as a whole, or in combination with an organization's existing initiatives. All of the strategies serve the needs of both the nonprofit organization and its for-profit partner. They are clearly and concisely explained under the headings of Strategy, Underlying Value, Components, and Execution. An extensive index helps the reader find ideas and strategies by name or by subject.
