For many nonprofits, raising funds is a never-ending challenge. Yet, the more time and thought put into fundraising, the more horses a group can help and the more stable an organization becomes. A well-rounded development plan will include an array of ways to raise money throughout the entire year and not rely solely on one or two events or major donors.
How many of the following does your development plan include?
- Special events/grassroots fundraising
- Direct mail marketing
- Monthly animal sponsorships
- Major gift appeals
- Merchandise sales
- Programming registrations (clinics, camps, therapeutic programs, riding lessons)
- Foundation grants
- Corporate sponsorships
- Social media appeals
- In-kind donations
