Turning Wealth Into What Matters by Dana Holt

This book is available for preorder. 


A generous donor wants to contribute a valuable non-cash asset to your nonprofit. You want to say “YES”. However, you worry that you’ll make a mistake and looking foolish in front of the donor and your organization.


I get it. Non-cash gifts can feel intimidating and even a bit scary. Throughout my career as gift planner, I’ve facilitated hundreds of non-cash gifts and have taught hundreds of people to do it too.


This book will help to eliminate the fears you have when it comes to non-cash gifts. It will provide you with:

  • Fundamental knowledge of each asset type.
  • A step-by-step process you can use with virtually every non-cash gift.
  • Proven internal procedures you can begin using right away.
  • Detailed intake checklists so you can be sure to collect all the right information.


  • Exceed your fundraising goals year after year!
  • Take your career to the next level!
  • Open up a world of new possibilities for donors, your organization, and YOU!
