Here's what you need in place before you start fundraising
If you can confidently articulate a problem, and can demonstrate that it is fixable with adequate financial support, then you shouldn’t be lacking any confidence. You are ready for a grant.
Before your group jumps head-first into the world of fundraising, it will need to prepare itself to receive donations. Sticking money under the mattress just won’t do. Your group will need a system in place for receiving donations of both money and goods.
A membership scheme isn’t a quick fix for any group. Your scheme may take a number of years to break even, let alone make a profit. It should therefore be seen as a long-term investment. As such, your forecasts, plans and budgets should be projected over at least three years.
