Fundraising
Fund-raising is a necessary evil in many
organizations. While the task of raising funds is
one that requires an extensive amount of effort,
the money raised during these drives is often
necessary for an organization's survival or its
support of worthy initiatives.

and Chapter rules and regulations that may affect
your fund raising activities.

Fund Raising Planning?
To make your fund-raiser a more profitable one,
dedicate time to the planning portion of the
process and increase the chances that your
fund-raiser is successful from the start.
15
Fund Raising Ideas?
  • Collect fundraising brochures from various local
    retailers. Keep them in a notebook for easy
    reference.
  • Call the leaders of local organizations such as
    the Parent and Teacher Association, Boy Scouts,
    Little League and Rotary. Ask them for
    fundraising ideas.
  • Look up fundraising ideas on the Internet. Enter
    "fundraising" into your Internet search engine,
    and you'll get lots of information.
    Fund-raising.com is a good place to start.

16
Fund Raising Ideas?
  • Visit your local library. Ask whether they keep
    fundraising information on hand.
  • Ask friends and co-workers for fundraising
    information and ideas.
  • Conduct a brainstorming session with your
    organization's leaders. Write down any creative,
    original ideas that are suggested.
  • Weed out fundraisers that violate the rules of
    your organization or jeopardize your nonprofit
    status.

Any Unique Ideas?
18
Fund Raising Planning?
  • Decide upon a fund raiser type and date.
  • Consider the season as well as the organization's
    past track record with fund raisers.
  • Fund raisers with which your organization has
    previously experienced success, you improve your
    chances of success again.
  • Gather volunteer workers. While you can have a
    solo-manned fund-raiser, doing so makes the task
    significantly more difficult than it needs to be.

19
Fund Raising Planning?
  • Set a goal.
  • Prepare a plan for tracking the fund-raiser's
    success.
  • Arrange a meeting to launch the fund-raiser.
  • Develop media plan.

Fund Raising Conclusion?
Jumping at several small opportunities may get us
there more quickly than waiting for one big one
to come along. Hugh Allen
