What is fundraising? What is it? How do you do it? Who gives out funds? And what if you hate asking people for money?
Particularly in today’s economy when budgets are stretched, ensuring the long-term sustainability of any project is hard work – but it’s not impossible.
All projects need funding (specifically allocated money and resources) to survive and grow. Without recurrent funding streams a project is not sustainable long-term. So, step one is knowing that fundraising is the on-going process through which you ensure your project has adequate resources. It is not a one-time only event (though you may have special events to help with your fundraising efforts and sometimes, you only need to raise money for a single event).
Key in most cases is to think about fundraising as one of the things you must constantly be doing to keep your project alive. Remember: fundraising is more than just raising funds – it is about ensuring your project or initiative has all the resources it needs to be sustainable long-term.
What are you trying to achieve? What do you need? Who is doing it already?
