Tips for a Successful Fundraising Campaign

October 27, 2008

Our goal at NFT is to help every patient have a successful campaign, whether they have one big event or a few small fundraisers. Here are some tips for success!

  • Stay committed and enthusiastic.
  • Thank contributors and volunteers.
  • Ask for help in person.
  • Meet regularly so everyone can stay focused.
  • Use a newsletter to keep everyone informed.
  • Advertise and attract attention. Take advantage of community resources, such as church bulletins and community calendars.
  • Be creative. Make ordinary events extraordinary. What about a black-tie bowl-a-thon or a “snowman”-building contest on the beach?
  • Continuously recruit volunteers so ideas are fresh and enthusiasm remains high.
  • Seek opportunities for matching funds from local corporations and businesses.
