WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[edit]


- work with individual donors - analyze the donor base - plan special events - solicit grants from foundations and corporations - get media coverage - use the Web to further fundraising goals - start a side business to raise funds

(from's page for Ilona Bray's "Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits: Real-World Strategies That Work")

1) Fundraising at its best is grounded in nurturing and building a 3-way partnership between: a) the Donor; b) the Non-Profit Organization or School; c) The Non-Profit's Mission and Purpose.

2) Our most successful non-profits and schools "work from their core strengths" - a concept that "permeates the organizational culture" and is reflected in how we approach our work and mission.

3) Virtually all successful fundraising programs recognize that a relatively small percent of donors will account for a high percent of dollars raised.

4) Fundraising is a process designed to nurture and support an organization's mission and work. It is not about meeting goals and "raising money".

5) With few exceptions, the success of a fundraising program is highly correlated with strong support from those closest to the organization - namely board members, staff, and senior leadership.

6) The most successful fundraising programs are based on an "Inverted Pyramid Model" that guides: a) the focus of development activity; and b) the allocation of time and resources.

7) The most successful fundraising programs are ground in the concept of a growing and sustainable partnership between the organization and donor.

8) Successful fundraising programs are, with few exceptions, grounded in a comprehensive development model with a carefully targeted set of program areas designed to meet both short and long-term organizational needs.

9) The most successful fundraisers share one common trait. They possess a "unique gift" for uncovering and connecting with a donor's transformational story.
