Develop your fundraising goals

You should have goals for the amount of money you need to raise, plus what the money will be used for.

  • Will you use it for renting buildings, paying people or travel expenses?
  • To fund an ongoing or new project?
  • To develop an emergency fund for a future rainy day?

You will likely have a number of goals. If so, develop a fundraising plan for each one.

Goals should be developed with your trustees, and have the trustee’s approval. Having your trustees involvement will also encourage them to participate in the fundraising itself.
