Step 4 (continued). Staff Fundraising

While fundraising is sometimes delegated to one person on staff (often the executive director), fundraising should be a component of every staff member's work. The role of staff members (and, if your organization is established, your development committee) in fundraising includes:

  • Leading the board's participation in fundraising campaigns, including accompanying board members to donor meetings and ensuring follow-up
  • Encouraging and thanking volunteers for their time
  • Embedding fundraising into their programming and outreach
  • Training the board on fundraising and updating board on current programs
  • Developing policies for fundraising
  • Soliciting board members and cultivating major donors
