When your non-profit was brand-new, did it have tremendous energy provided by eager founders? Did it have lots of seed money from donors and foundations? As the years passed and the goals of your organization were not yet achieved (you didn’t completely eradicate racism or save the planet), did founders and early donors slip away? It often happens. To prevent this, you need to have a long-term fundraising strategy from the beginning. Organizations that focus only on short-term fundraising will fail. Only a long-term plan assures success and stability.
The author of the classic Fundraising for Social Change will teach you how to conduct a capital campaign, launch an endowment, project income into the future, and ask your long-time donors for more money. For the greatest benefit, come with a colleague or a board member from your organization.
