“A very useful tool for pastors, so many of whom are called upon to seek funding for projects in their parishes. There is a fair amount that is available for them regarding what is commonly called ‘stewardship,’ but not a lot on fundraising. There should be a willing audience for this helpful volume in the epistolary style.”

Bishop Joel M. Konzen, Archdiocese of Atlanta
