Fundraising Development

When your nonprofit incorporates fundraising and development into their organizational strategy it will only serve to make your organization stronger and high functioning. Fundraising can provide you with supplemental funds that enhance what your group does and provide new opportunities for your members. Raising funds for an important cause in your community puts your organization in a positive light – it’s free, positive publicity. 

Fundraising grants your organization exposure by increasing your presence in your target community and also makes your organization more attractive to grant makers, sponsors, and investors. By being specific about your cause, your donations will be dramatically higher than  just saying that you are doing a fundraiser without specifying what the funds will be used for. Your cause should be something you can feel good about asking people to help fund. 

Fundraising efforts benefit your organization in other ways such as bringing your employees closer together and breaking down barriers between different departments or cliques. Fundraising also creates heightened awareness of your group and your cause.   

Different types of fundraising can help you reach and connect to a new audience and a younger demographic. Mobile giving (the use of smartphones or tablets to donate funds) is on the rise, especially with younger generations. Crowdfunding, a fundraising method that involves requesting (usually online) a small amount of money from a large number of people to fund a project, has also become very popular. Another useful type fundraising called person to person (P2P) is more personal allowing your current members to share your goals with friends and family — you’re more likely to support an organization a friend supports than to support an organization a stranger tells you about.

A nonprofit that doesn’t fundraise is vulnerable to its source of funding ending. A mix of revenues, grants, gifts, and sponsorships is the best way to ensure sustainability for your organization.
