PDF – 2014 – This fundraising guide originated from the desire to help grassroots organizations struggling to raise enough money to be able to meet their needs. Fundraisers developed this guide to help women’s groups better understand the world of grantseeking and build their skills to raise money for their desired causes and projects.
It contains practical advice based on years of experience in professional fundraising in the United States about the best places to look for money to support your work, how to develop your message, how to secure funds, and how to build and maintain successful relationships with your supporters. It also provides tips and detailed instructions on how to write grant proposals, budgets, and reports.
The guide also includes a bibliography of other resources available on the Internet to help you research funding opportunities and build your support networks. Finally, the guide contains a list of funders who give small grants to community-based groups in developing countries; most are in the U.S. and Europe, but the list also includes a few funds based in developing countries.
