What We Can Do: Tips for Fundraising

December 1, 1999

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.

Also, there is no guarantee that your organization will make money on the event.
