AFP/Skystone Partners Research Prize
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has awarded the 2018 AFP/Skystone Partners Prize for Research on Fundraising and Philanthropy to Beth Breeze for her book The New Fundraisers: Who Organises Charitable Giving in Contemporary Society?
Commenting on Dr. Breeze’s award-winning book, the prize jury commented that “this excellent volume was selected because of its value as a research study that centers itself outside of the United States. Dr. Breeze’s book argues that fundraising is about much more than simply ‘raising funds’ by asking donors, as the process must also include the complex work of cultivation by the practitioner. Prior to now, most researchers have focused on individual donors, their characteristics and their motivations. Dr. Breeze flips the script and, through empirical research, helps us understand the fundraiser. We commend Dr. Breeze for strong research and an accessible book that can forward our field.”
