Editor s Notes (Janice Gow Pettey).
1. Fundraising mores in diverse communities: The role of ethnicity
and culture (S. Sanae Tokumura).
Donor research must include the cultural collateral of prospective philanthropists. This chapter uses examples from Hawaii, the first "majority minority" state.
2. Looking at life through rainbow-colored glasses (Kay C. Peck).
Welcoming someone to a new environment involves more than opening the doors. If an organization wants to welcome gays, it must send individuals to interact with the gay community.
3. Using a communication perspective to manage diversity in the
development office (William F. Bartolini).
A communication perspective can be helpful in understanding ourselves and others, and in developing an organizational culture that welcomes diversity.
4. Beyond representation: Building diverse board leadership
teams (Maria Gitin).
Opportunities and challenges involving identification and cultivation of diverse boards are explored.
5. Five reasons for nonprofit organizations to be inclusive (Samuel N. Gough, Jr.).
People support organizations with which they feel a connection. Nonprofit staff and volunteers need to understand the traditions of giving and sharing of the people whose support they seek.
