About Non Profit Fundraising
Did you know that 85% of​ Non Profit Fundraising every year is​ acquired from direct individual donations?
That 85% consists of​ large and small donations but it​ is​ the steady stream of​ small donations that keep most nonprofits afloat .​
One should plan and forward his or​ her steps careful if​ the organization is​ new and they are not sure about the process of​ Non Profit Fundraising.
Ideally, first step should be to​ cultivate donors in​ the local community and than move on to​ Internet Fundraising .​
How does one raise funds?
One can raise your funds through grants, product sale and special events and by phonathons .​
Online fundraising is​ very popular around the world these days.
Primarily one has to​ find one or​ two donor who will make a​ large donation (known as​ major donors) .​


Let us discuss some simple steps to​ get prospective donors interested and involved in​ the project.
1) Create a​ list of​ prospective donors who may get interested in​ organization’s activities.
2) Primarily one should concentrate on friend-raising activities rather than a​
fund-raising one, like organizing some special events (a spaghetti dinner, carnival, concert, or​ some other fun activity) with several door prizes.
3) Now create a​ mailing list of​ those persons who are somewhat interested or​ may get interested about the organization .​
One should include the following points in​ the mailing list-
a) detailed address of​ office and residence
b) phone number
c) personal & detailed information
4) Within 3 days mail a​ nice letter to​ every listed individual .​
In addition, tell them-
a) how the organization is​ helping someone in​ the community.
b) that it​ is​ only possible with the support (monetary and otherwise) from
good people like them.
c) ask them for contribution and include a​ pre-addressed return envelope to​ make it​ easy for the donor.
5) Try to​ invite the prospect to​ come as​ a​ volunteer.
a) have a​ volunteer coordinator well prepared in​ advance to​ accept all calls, and to​ put them to​ good use.
b) the coordinator should introduce them to​ the staff, and make them feel to​ be a​ part of​ the organization .​
Once a​ volunteer feels to​ be a​ part of​ the
organization, he or​ she (and friends) is​ more likely to​ contribute .​
6) Send letters and newsletters to​ those who did not volunteer .​
It may work to​ good effect if​ they are asked to​ speak to​ their civic groups, church groups about the organization .​
a​ good relationship always pays .​
.​
7) Thank anybody and everybody whenever and however possible on whatever occasion.
Finally, maintaining donors’ involvement over time is​ indispensable .​
Try to​ get them excited about what you are doing with their kind help.
Remember: Non Profit Fundraising is​ all about building relationships.
