Now Available! ​

Lynne Wester is internationally known as the mind and author behind The 4 Pillars of Donor Relations—a framework she developed to help fundraising and donor relations professionals organize and prioritize their work. 

The 4 Pillars of the Donor Experience—knowledge, strategy, culture, and emotion—build upon the foundation of the 4 Pillars of Donor Relations, and let us understand the fundamental truths behind why donors continue to respond to our work, continue to give, and deepen their relationships with our organization.

The book is chocked full of practical advice, strategic frameworks, and examples that will help you build a relationship with your donors based on trust that will most definitely lead to a robust fundraising effort for your nonprofit."
