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.
