So What? Answering a Donor’s Toughest Question: Show Your Impact To Raise More Money

by Gilles Gravelle

This book helps social and faith-based nonprofit organizations provide meaningful and convincing answers to the most important question a donor
can ask: “What difference is your cause making?” It’s the so-what test few charitable organizations are capable of passing. Instead, they mostly provide
anecdotes and one-off stories. Results are characterized as a large number. It’s not enough these days. Donors want to know that stories about change are not isolated examples, but evidence that positive impact will continue to increase. This book argues that measuring qualitative change is possible and not as hard as you think. Not only will you see the possibilities, you will know how to recognize significant impact and how to report it to your donors.

Posibles Imposibles narra una historia extraordinaria, que, por su temática, pareciera ser otro relato de ficción. Nada de especial tendría entonces, pues mucha tinta ha corrido y mucho papel se ha impreso con contenidos extraordinarios y relatos que son aceptados tácitamente como fantasía. Muchas historias que no necesitan de más justificación que la labor aplicada de una fértil imaginación se han escrito ya… pero ese no es el caso de este libro. Posibles Imposibles encara hechos y situaciones realmente increíbles, en el marco de una historia que bien podría ser la suya, y los concilia mansamente con el ámbito de los hechos y situaciones realmente creíblesâ?¦ o al menos con la irritante sospecha de posibilidad; y es que en este libro cuando se habla de “hechos increíbles”, no debe entenderse que se está hablando de hechos intrascendentes o anodinosâ?¦ ¿Se ha preguntado sobre la razón de nuestras vidas?… ¿Se puede detener el envejecimiento y la muerte?… ¿Qué es el verdadero Amor?… ¿Podría definirse a Dios?
Muchas preguntas tiene el hombre, y este libro no las responderá, pues mucho se sorprenderá al saber que las respuestas siempre estuvieron a su alcance� en su corazón.
