I help not for profit organizations access resources to further their missions. I concentrate on obtaining support from individuals for annual or capital campaigns as well as endowment. Each of my strategic plans is unique and created for the particular organization.

—Deborah Kaplan Polivy, Ph.D.

Charity Channel Press will be publishing Deborah’s second book, The Donor Lifecycle Map: A Model for Fundraising Success (tentative title), in October 2016. This new book will focus on her experience using the Donor Lifecycle Map in the field and it will be based on the model proposed in her first book, Donor Cultivation and the Donor Lifecycle Map: A New Framework for Fundraising (Wiley, 2014). She will describe achievements and impediments and make recommendations for fundraising success.

I think that Ms Polivy is doing a fantastic job in keeping us focused and moving in the right direction.
