In Leo Rosten’s book, The Joys of Yiddish, the definition of a schnorrer is a beggar, a panhandler, a moocher, a cheapskate, a compulsive bargain hunter, a borrower. Doesn’t sound so good, does it?

But when you beg for the good of others you have raised it to a fine art! With practical information on the care and feeding of donors, and the How-to's for asking for money or products, this humorous book gives you the tools for a successful outcome. With 20 years of experience in the non-profit world, the authors direct your approach to large or small organizations, clubs, foundations and individuals, leading to a happy ending.

In this mighty little book, you'll learn:

  • how to ask for the goods, services, and funding support you need for your cause, and have your benefactors giving easily and willfully with hugs and thanks -- and maybe even a free lunch!
  • the power of simple Yiddish to inspire and connect through kindness, benevolence, and humor!
  • how to find the joy and enthusiasm that comes from giving of yourself in the service of others!
