Write down your fundraising plan

It is important not to just fly from one fundraising scheme to the next. Develop a written plan that states how much you need to raise, who you will get this money from, and how you will do it. Don’t worry; the plan can be changed as you develop your project. Not all of your ideas will work out, or you may find new ways of raising funds along the way.

Start with your current projects and current funding. Do you have enough money or is there a gap? Do you want to do more but don’t have the funds? This first stage of financial accounting will help you to work out what your goal should be for your more fundraising.
