There are many creative ways you can raise money for your non-profit organization. Fund-raising can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose to make it.
The best place to start your search for raising money for a special project, on-going program, or day to day running expenses, is right in your office. You may already have a diversity of talent, skill, and creative ingenuity at your disposal through your volunteers and board of directors
Gather your staff and volunteers together for the special purpose of planning a fund-raising project. Ideas may be in the form of large scale fund-raising events, such as concerts, art auctions, silent auctions, and dinner/dancing events. There are also smaller scale events such as bake sales, pancake breakfasts, spaghetti suppers, and car washes.
Everything from pizza and candy sales, to catalog orders, to click-to-donate programs can be ideas you might want to consider. Your directors / volunteers specific skills, knowledge, and interest can help you pick a fund-raising project that will work for you.
Outside of your office look for local grant and mini-grant opportunities. Also, talk with local businesses and ask for either out-right cash donations or in-kind donations, which can help your organization save money on materials and supplies. Community, Philanthropic and Fraternal Organizations as well as local Churches and Religious Organizations can be wonderful supporters of charity organizations, so don’t overlook these community resources.
There are over 80,000 foundations that give money to nonprofit organizations. However, research must be conducted to discover which foundations will give funding for your specific programs and services. Thereafter, you must submit a Grant Application, and each grant application is different and the process for applying varies from company to company.
