What nonprofit do for you to raise money

For most non-profits, the best way to raise money is through “warm fundraising.” This means reaching out to people your organization and staff already has a relationship with… your current donors, volunteers and friends, as well as those who know your donors, volunteers and friends. By calling and meeting with people you know (or who know people that already support you), you will have a warm introduction to your prospects and a much better chance of being able to successfully raising money from them.

Finally, as noted above, fundraising is all about building relationships. Your goal as a fundraiser is to build a long-term relationship between the non-profit and the donor. This allows your organization to build a base of support that lasts from year to year, rather than having to find new avenues of support every 12 months.

Having a budget helps you and teaches you how to save and your finances

A written, monthly budget is a financial planning tool that allows you to plan how much you will spend or save each month. It also allows you to track your spending habits.

Though making a budget may not sound like the most exciting activity (and for some, it's downright scary), it's an important part of keeping your financial house in order. That's because budgets rely on balance. If you spend less in one area, you can spend more in another, save that money for a large purchase, build a "rainy day" fund, increase your savings, or invest in building wealth.
