All nonprofit organizations require resources to successfully execute their mission. 在外部资金减少的时候, 提高了对非营利组织问责的期望, and an economic downturn that has negatively affected individual donors and funding entities, nonprofit organizations and charities must work harder to raise the funds needed. 要获得财政支持，需要有一个清晰的理由, a well-developed plan to communicate that case to identified prospects, 以及实施有效的征集策略的能力.
- Develop a nonprofit fundraising plan to outline methods to use (annual giving, major gifts, grants, crowdfunding, 社区筹款, etc.)
- Build a case for support by creating a document that outlines the organization’s mission, programs, 以及其他人为什么应该向该组织捐款
- Draft a grant application to formally request funds for your organization or project
