Fundraising is as simple as one person asking another to get involved, provide help, take a stand, join a movement. It feels good to give.
The most important ingredient in fundraising is passion for your organization’s mission. Use that passion to identify prospective donors, build relationships, and create projects that will make others want to contribute. Get the steps and strategies to:
- Effectively “tell your story.”
- Develop fundable projects.
- Research prospective funders.
- Make the “ask.”
- Integrate fundraising throughout the organization.
