Preparing an overall fundraising plan

Many professionals find themselves in a leadership position for a non-profit organization for which they have great passion, but no fundraising development experience.  However, non-profit organizations cannot and should not exist without some fundraising.  What should you do and when?

  • A  gala
  • Appeal letter
  • Grant proposal
  • Golf tournament
  • Face-to-face solicitation calls

Crescendo fundraising coaching and training can guide a director, board of directors or volunteers in implementing a plan that will help build awareness of the organization and increase contributions.  Having a fundraising plan can take the stress out of the responsibility of managing a non-profit organization.

One of our fundraising professionals will meet with you to provide a fundraising plan tailored to meet your specific fundraising objectives.  Seminars for your staff members, board of directors or volunteers are also available.  Call or e-mail us today so we can discuss your situation and suggest a plan tailored for your unique needs.
