Fundraising Tip — Desperation Fundraising
Hint: Don’t do it.
I’m sure there is an official term for this. Desperation fundraising is just my term. It means that a fundraiser is often up against a wall, constantly getting calls or drop-ins from the ED or finance person (or worse yet, board members!) about how much needs to be raised RIGHT NOW!
Don’t do it. Don’t buy into.
Instead, create a plan.
Do you have a budget? I don’t mean the agency’s budget. I mean your personal or team budget for development or fundraising.
