What is The Little Book of Gold?

"The Little Book of Gold" by Erik Hanberg is an essential book for anyone working on fundraising at a small nonprofit. This book is quick and easy to read and really packs a punch. It's full of fantastic fundraising suggestions that you can implement, even if you have a team of only one!

Little Green Light is making free copies of "The Little Book of Gold" available to all LGL customers throughout 2022. 

We are also making available the LGL Companion Guide, which shows you how you can use your LGL account to implement the many great ideas presented in "The Little Book of Gold."     

When you download "The Little Book of Gold," you'll see that you can read it in an e-reader (such as a Kindle), on a mobile app, or on your computer. The service we're using to distribute the book is called BookFunnel, which makes the process very smooth. Here's how the download works.

For example, to read the book on your Kindle, click the "Kindle Tablet or E-Reader" button and you'll see a couple of options. One is to get an email that you can forward to your Kindle. In my case, I had to remember to add my email address as an authorized sending address for my Kindle (here's help on that). 

Another option is to read the book on your phone, in which case BookFunnel has a free app. 

How to get the LGL Companion Guide
