Editorial Reviews

"Drezner and Huehls¿s book is a welcome contribution to the field of higher education philanthropy. It provides a much-needed theoretical foundation to the topic yet also makes a practical contribution with the case studies and questions that conclude each chapter. I am recommending this book to all of my students and colleagues in institutional advancement. I hope that doctoral students of fundraising especially take note: Don¿t write another word of your dissertation before reading this book." --Kim Nehls, Executive Director, Association for the Study of Higher Education   "This pioneering work makes a tremendous contribution in bridging theory to practice in the field of institutional advancement. It is a book that we've needed for a long time, and will have an important place in preparing the next generation of scholars and practitioners in the field." --David J. Weerts, Associate Professor of Higher Education and Faculty Director of the Jandris Center for Innovative Higher Education, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities ¿
