Fundraising Planning

Fundraising Planning for Nonprofits

Fundraising doesn't just happen. It takes a plan.

You have an annual budget. So you know how much money you need to raise each year. But do you know how you’re going to do that?

Fundraising doesn’t just happen. It takes thought, preparation, and action. In short, you need a plan.

Here are a few reasons why your nonprofit need a written fundraising plan.

It helps you focus and set priorities. The fundraising planning process encourages you to look at what's working, what's not, and how you want to spend your valuable time.

It strengthens your fundraising program. With a plan, you'll have a diverse set of fundraising activities – things you can do all year long. You'll know if you're on target or how to get back on track

It can lighten your workload. An effective fundraising plan involves everyone in the organization – including board members. (And yes, board members can – and should – help. That's because there's a lot more to fundraising than "asking.")

It becomes a roadmap for how to get from here to there. A written plan helps everyone understand how your organization is going to raise the money you need to do your important work.

An effective fundraising plan includes a goal. And strategies. And tactics. And a calendar. And assignments to people throughout your organization.

Creating a written fundraising plan is your first step to raising the money your nonprofit needs.

Yes, I want Laura to help me create a fundraising plan!
