Have you planned your fundraising goal setting sessions for the new year? Since every successful fundraising campaign begins with a well thought plan, it’s a good idea to gather a team and craft a strategy to optimize your school’s fundraising events in 2018. Begin by downloading a giving and fundraising guide by clicking here.
As you get started, ask the team what’s special about your school and its mission, whether that mission has changed in the past year or two, and how your efforts can make the biggest difference in the education of students. When that’s complete, you can move from the abstract to the tangible with a realistic strategy.
Things to consider include:
It’s also a good idea to create a series of emails to engage and appeal to your supporters and audience. Begin with a soft launch by reaching out to your most devoted supporters. A sturdy base of support can make all the difference in your giving campaign! Then move forward with a hard launch to your entire school community announcing your campaign. In the middle of the campaign, email your network with compelling appeals and updates on your progress, and when the campaign ends, be sure to thank your donors, fundraisers, and supporters. Update them on your campaign’s results and positive impact!
