Tips on Fund Raising

Fundraising really is all about telling stories. Its also about telling the right story in the right way. Show donors through stories why they're needed and what their gifts will do than you will with iron-clad facts and statistics. Make the donor a hero and make a difference. Using the story of a beneficiary in need also works. Bragging about excellent staff and methodologies would be less preferred.
