Five totally random but useful things new fundraisers might want to know
I was just thinking about these, and thought I’d share. What would you add to the list?
1. A gift pyramid is really helpful to determine the level of effort you need to raise money. It’s not just for big campaigns. You can use it to plan for special events and even annual giving programs. See how one works online at blackbaud.
2. If their website doesn’t list them, you can discover what grants foundations made in what amounts to what organizations by looking at their 990-PFs. You can find those on Guidestar or The Foundation Center’s 990 finder.
3. The Center for What Works has free sample logic models for 14 types of nonprofits.
5. You can get low cost technology products (and free advice) at TechSoup.org
