Fundraising in the one-person development shop: making the most of a shoestring budget

At the best of times, fundraising can be challenging. But, fundraising in the one person development shop can be daunting, especially when one is working with a shoestring budget. The key situation like these is to know what areas to prioritize, and how to get the biggest bang for your buck because you can't do it all. This seminar will focus on the issues unique to one person fundraising departments, and will drill down in the following areas:
  • Keeping your organization on track financially: create and maintain a year round fundraising plan
  • Research: research your prospects on a shoestring budget
  • Directmail: work with an established third party service provider to maximize your returns
  • Major gifts program: develop and maintain a manageable high dollar giving club
  • Planned giving: start simple with a will and bequests program
  • Donor solicitation: make it easy for your donors to give and for you to receive donations
  • Special events: conduct a unique annual event that makes efficient use of volunteers
  • Leaderhsip involvement: find creative ways to get your executive director and/or board involvement in the fundraising process
Attendees will walk away with fresh ideas to take their one person development shop to the next level. This session is intended for Executive Directors, Director of Development and any fundraising staff who are working with a limited fundraising budget.
