What We Can Do: Tips for Fundraising
December 1, 2001
A fundraising campaign involves making an appeal for donations to support a cause or fund an event. It can be accomplished through personal requests, telephone appeals or letters requesting donations.
Another method of raising funds is to sponsor a charity/benefit event. Such events can build visibility and issue awareness in the community. However, planning fundraising events requires more money and the assistance of more people than a simple fundraising campaign. Also, there is no guarantee that your organization will make money on the event.
