Pages From My Life emphasizes how a general liberal arts background can serve as a basis for a successful career with voluntary organizations that require grants from foundations, corporations, government, and individuals, obtained by the submission of fundraising proposals drafted by associates. Major universities now offer continuing education courses on fundraising through development proposals. This book describes the variety of non-profit organizations for which the author prepared and submitted proposals, including person-to-person meetings with prospective donors. The volume details the funding applications drafted by the author for a range of voluntary organizations, based on his on-job experience, and goes far beyond any theoretical description. Non-profit organizations of special interest in the author's background are Catholic Charities, Federations of Protestant Agencies, Federations of Jewish Philanthropies, universities and colleges, and a range of social service, medical, and religious organizations.
