The Volunteers’ Guide helps readers navigate the legal niceties of nonprofit status and handling money, then thoroughly explores a wide variety of fundraising methods and strategies, highlighting key concepts as tips, cautions, and resources. In each chapter, Bray introduces a fundraising professional who has served as an adviser for the chapter’s content.

She has written a number of Nolo books that are perennial bestsellers and maintains Nolo blogs on fundraising and real estate; she also blogs for U.S. Immigration Lawyers.com. According to the Nolo website, her background “includes solo practice, nonprofit, and corporate stints, as well as long periods of volunteering, including an internship at Amnesty International’s main legal office in London. She received her law degree and a Master’s degree in East Asian (Chinese) Studies from the University of Washington.”
