Fundraising may not come naturally to you or your organization, but it is often necessary. When fundraising, try to take the perspective that there are other people out there who believe in your cause, focus, or issue, and want to help. Fundraising is just a matter of finding those people and giving them the opportunity to contribute.

The key to being successful in your fundraising is to keep your goal in mind and make sure your goal ties to your mission. Communicating your group's fundraising goal as well as your spending goal is crucial to soliciting donations; people want to know what you need money for and how much you need.
