How does a small non-profit avoid the stress and headaches of an un-organized fundraising operation? No matter how small your organization may be, the best strategy is to develop a comprehensive, well-written fundraising plan. Such a plan will help your staff and board set realistic financial goals as well as provide guidance on tactics and tasks to reach those goals. It will also shape your fundraising calendar for the year, protect you from the "idea of the month", and keep your staff sane in the day-to-day operations of the development office. In this session we will walk through the process of creating from scratch a successful fundraising plan.
