What people are saying

Clients and readers have found help from Erik and his book

"Erik got my board to think critically about what kind of fundraising activities we should be investing our time and energy in. He helped them get clear on areas to focus on, and informed our fundraising activities and budget for the coming year."

—Krystal Kyer, Executive Director, Tahoma Audubon Society

"I read The Little Book of Gold and thought it was so awesome, I'm having the rest of my non-profit's board read it. I feel like reading this has saved me time in not pursuing stuff you think of as non-profit money making. The book is short and concise and worth the read."

—Michaela Eaves, Board Member, Washington State Animal Response Team

"The Little Book of Boards was extremely helpful, concise, to the point, and easy to understand. I highly recommend it."

—Vania Kent, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director, SKY Yoga

I've read a ton of books and blogs and newsletters about the topics but they're all for bigger orgs with dedicated staff to each task. Your words were the first that I came across that actually spoke to KIOO and me directly. Thank you for that.

—Babita Patel, Executive Director, KIOO Project
