Developing a fundraising plan that works


A not-for-profit can have many strengths and still struggle to meet fundraising goals because it lacks a strategic fundraising plan. To develop one, form a fundraising committee consisting of board members, executives and key staffers.

It should include operating expenses, staff costs and volunteer projections. Once the budget is approved, create an action plan with specific assignments.
