Plan the Work and Work the Plan: Build a Great Fundraising Plan for Your Organization

May 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


About the Webinar

It’s not entirely common to find organizations that develop and follow an annual fundraising plan. It’s even less common to find an organization that has developed and is using a multi-year fundraising plan that charts a course for more than this current fiscal year. How does that fundraising plan tie into the strategic plan? Does it account for board membership goals? What about awareness building activities? Does it clearly outline revenue objectives across all fundraising mechanisms, and does it have a calendar of activities that can inform all members of the organization? These are some of the important elements to consider when building your own fundraising plan. Join this engaging discussion of the best practices and strategies to consider when building your own fundraising plan.
