Four steps for successful fundraising
A fundraising plan is key to establishing – both internally and externally – whether or not you can generate the income to deliver your proposed services.
6 tips for creating a clear Fundraising Plan
A fundraising plan is a route map, enabling charities to analyse where they are and where they want to be; and in doing so marking the milestones required to get there.
It establishes a vision that everyone can rally towards and lays out robust financial plans.
Fundraising Plan Template
Writing a fundraising plan is an important step that will help your organisation fundraise successfully.
Use this template to help develop a timeline for different activities that comprise your fundraising.
For bigger fundraising projects, you could also create additional monthly activity tables that will give further detail.
As well as planning your project and fundraising activity, it will be important to plan the value of grants and donations you expect to receive and when.
If you have set a fundraising target, this will help you keep track of the funding gap you are working to close.
Researching possible donors and funders for your charity
Finding funding or potential donors starts by identifying the revenenue streams available to you.
4 steps to help build a successful grant application
A successful grant application will need to have a persuasive pitch delivering the right message, providing a concrete case for why someone should
consider financially supporting your cause.
Outcome and Impact
Understanding the terminology is key to writing clear funding applications, as well as helping
you to improve the work you do.
