Arthur Frantzreb, a long-time fund-raising consultant, recently donated his collection of nonprofit research to George Mason. The collection includes more than 200 books, some of which are no longer in print. Frantzreb compiled the research during his 50 years of consulting work with more than 850 nonprofit organizations.

“This collection has contributed material no longer published that represents some of the very first writings about philanthropy, fund raising, the governance, and the management of nonprofit organizations,” says Patricia Lewis, nonprofit management professional in residence. “This additional depth and breadth provides our students and faculty valuable information for research and study as they help create solutions to the multiple dilemmas nonprofits face achieving their missions in a changing, competitive, market-driven environment.”

The collection will be housed in the Arlington Campus Library and will be available within the next few months. Additionally, Frantzreb’s numerous pamphlets, monographs, and notes will be maintained in the offices of the Nonprofit Management Program, part of the Department of Public and International Affairs.
