The primary step in successful fundraising is to have a comprehensive fund raising strategy. This means examining all potential revenue sources and designing a strategy that will allow the organization to take advantage of each source.

Strategic fund development also means establishing benchmarks and evaluation criteria for success. This strategy must include designing an appropriate mix of revenue sources in appropriate proportion to each other. It also means taking into account potential in-kind contributions, especially those (like free or low rent) that factor into economic viability for a nonprofit organization.

In the field of Development, Strategic Fund Development is the big picture, long-range view and is the most important first step. James P. Reber provides this essential service and does so with more knowledge and experience than many consultants, having founded a handful of nonprofit organizations.

If your organization does not have a comprehensive Strategy for fund development, you need to have one as soon as possible. This is something that should be a joint Board/Staff project, since it affects everyone.
