Long before you go out and ask for money, you need to plan your campaign – and Gary Friedmann & Associates can help you do it. We’ll work with your board to bring together friends and supporters of your organization who are willing to put in the time and effort to help you reach your fundraising goals.
The first step is to figure out how much you need – and for what. We’ll help create a campaign budget, a case statement outlining your needs and how you intend to solve them, and a list of potential donors.
When the goal is a large one, we may advise you to do a feasibility study to determine how much money you will be able to raise, and what aspects of your project most appeal to your constituency.
We work closely with your board, staff and committee to help them through the fundraising process. Our solicitation training is designed to teach the fundamental skills of asking for money, and to give you the confidence to approach potential donors.
