Fund Development Tips



1. Think in terms of fund development rather than fundraising.



  • Building relationships for a long-term base of support.


2. Individuals should be your primary targets for securing support.



  • 83.5% of all charitable gifts in the US come from individuals.


3. Solicit your members for additional support over and beyond their dues and do so more than once a year.



  • Individuals who are most committed to your League will be your best donors.


4. Base all your development activities on a case for support that articulates/demonstrates the community needs and showcases how your League meets those needs.



  • See “Internal Case for Support Worksheet”


5. Development is the responsibility of everyone on your board.
