1. It combines the work of two of the most highly acclaimed writers in the history of fundraising.

2. The manuscript is replete with wit and wisdom.

3. It’s the kind of material you will underline and make notes in the margins.

4. There are seventeen chapters written by Si Seymour. Each chapter is followed by CRIBNOTES by Jerry.

5. The CRIBNOTES alone are worth the price of the book.

6. Si Seymour wrote the material 50 years ago. You will be amazed. It is every bit as relevant today.

7. There are 153 pages filled with collectable tips.

8. The chapter, “Fund-raising’s Two Mossiest Myths,” exposes the deadly suggestions you often hear from board members. And perhaps your boss.

9. There’s a chapter on making the Case. It’s right on target.

10. The section on working with laymen is a gem.

11. There’s a superb chapter about securing a gift from foundations.

12. And, of course, a chapter on capital campaigns.

We could go on. Every chapter touches an important function of our work. And if you already know about Si Seymour, you are a roaring fan. This is material never before published.

You have never seen anything quite like the way The Lost Manuscript is packaged. It comes in a 3-ring binder. It is an exact copy of the binder that was presented to Jerry 50 years ago. It was darn difficult to find a precise copy of the binder. And the publisher used paper that looks brown with age.

This is a book you must have for your fundraising collection. And to help you find your way most successfully in your fundraising journey. You have never seen anything like it.

If you don’t find The Lost Manuscript everything we’ve said, return the book for a full money-back refund. No questions. Period. Binder, 153 pages, $59.00.
