Fundraising is an essential activity for all startup nonprofit organizations. Many will try to avoid fundraising believing that once they have the 501c3 status, donations will be easy. This is a big mistake. Others may focus on grant writing, expecting a "miracle check" to help them start or grow the organization. This is also a mistake, especially when you don't have a good website, a strategic plan, success stories or other business fundamentals in place.
Successful nonprofit organizations are those that develop a diverse set of income strategies which includes fundraising to help provide revenue for the organization. While fundraising may seem to be a lot of work, it is critical that it becomes a regular part of the organization's activities. Some charities or nonprofit organizations may have as many as 8-12 fundraising events planned for the year.
