Innovations in Experimental Fundraising
Two-thirds of nonprofits in the US are stuck at $500,000 or below in revenue, struggling to make payroll each month, while trying to solve the world’s most pressing social problems.” (Social Impact Success, 2017) The fundraising landscape changes. Having an innovative approach to fundraising helps you build a sustainable organization. You need foundation dollars, individual donations and earned income to help you build and sustain your dream. In this workshop, we will share some of the most creative, surprising, and effective experimental ways that organizations can bring in additional revenue to do what they do best. You will leave this session with tools and resources to make strong asks, build relationships and a fundraising plan template to build on.
