Fundraising Basics

Did you recently add fundraising tasks to your other work?
Were you recruited to the fundraising committee of your Board?
Do you have a great idea to improve your community but need money to do it?

Do you find that you know less about fundraising than you wish?

For whatever reason, you are looking for some basic knowledge about fundraising. You’re in luck because this section is designed for you. Here you’ll find a number of free articles that are especially helpful to people new to fundraising.

For starters, we’ll clue you in on the three most important things to know about fundraising right up front:

  1. People give when they are asked, and rarely give when they are not. Even when people are asked, they don’t always give. So, you need to ask for more gifts than the number you need to bring in, and you need to be comfortable with people saying “No.”
  2. Donors are not ATMs. You need to thank them and keep them posted on what your organization is doing with their money if you want them to give more than once.
  3. You can’t raise all the money your group needs by yourself. Spend some time building a team of people to help you.

Check out the following articles. The ones that are links are free PDF downloads.
