We have winner!

On January 13, 2012, I published the post “Enter Now to Win a Free Planned-Giving Book.” Readers who commented on the post were entered into a drawing for a free copy of my book, Donor-Centered Planned Gift Marketing.

The winner of the free book contest is Rhonda Huber from Provena Health.

I thank everyone who participated in the contest by commenting, and I congratulate Rhonda!

I also want to thank Chris Kirchner, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance, for agreeing to draw the winning entry. PCA is an organization that brings justice and healing to the victims of child sexual abuse, a crime impacting one in four girls and one in six boys.

If you’re interested in purchasing a copy of Donor-Centered Planned Gift Marketing, you will find it at your favorite book retailer or by clicking the link which will take you to The Nonprofit Bookstore (powered by Amazon). The book is on the official CFRE International Resource Reading List. For my work on the book, I received the AFP/Skystone Partners Prize for Research in Fundraising and Philanthropy making it the first time in more than a decade that an author has been presented the AFP/Skystone Prize for a book about planned giving.

That’s what Michael Rosen says… What do you say?

  1. Michael–thank you for the book! We are working to change from an organization-centered culture of philanthropy to a donor-centered culture so your book could not come at a more opportune time. We have incorported over the last few years principles presented by Penelope Burke for donor-centered fundraising and Janet Hedrick for stewardship but have only just begun to change our messaging for planned giving.

    Know that I enjoy reading your blog and thanks again for the book.

    • Rhonda, thank you for the kind message. Penelope Burke and Janet Hedrick are certainly terrific when it comes to donor-centered fundraising and solid stewardship. You’ll find I quote them both in my book. Thank you for sharing our vision!
