Creating a Fundraising Plan?
Planning is hard. With a load of responsibilities on the development team, many times planning takes a backseat to immediate needs and crisis fundraising. A well-written fundraising plan will allow you to focus your efforts, plan out your annual fundraising tasks, and help you create and evaluate strategies to accomplish and exceed expectations. With our development planner, you’ll be able to track fundraising goals throughout the year in one easy-to-use tool. If creating a plan is the next step in your development career, this is the workshop for you. One of the biggest challenges for today’s nonprofits, regardless of size, is diversification of revenue sources and historical review of what has worked, is working, and may work going forward.
