           I always find Nolo books very valuable and The Volunteers’ Guide to Fundraising is no different. The book is packed with very useful tips on what types of companies and organization can participate in fundraising activities as well as what the groups can and cannot do from a legal standpoint.
          A fundraising committee can run background checks on its volunteers and this guide shows you just how to do that as well as creating a budget.
          This title has a wide array of money raising suggestion such as festivals, dinners, contests, sporting events and auctions.
          As with many Nolo guides, there is an attached CD-ROM. It is complete with information on how to apply for grants and a wide array of forms.
          I recommend this to any group, but especially non-profits, schools, daycares and small businesses. In addition, readers can reference the book online at
