The annual fund is the building for all fundraising. It serves to establish a base of donors that can serve as an effective device to inform and beyond a constituency to the organization. An annual fund focuses on individual donors that traditionally support the general operations of an organization. .
Major Gift Campaign
A Major Gift Campaign is a vital part of a comprehensive fundraising program. These are larger gifts that often serve as the basis for an annual campaign, may be a part of a special campaign or are the largest income portion of a capital campaign. A Major Gift program is the process an organization pursues to cultivate individual donors into larger donors.
A Corporate Campaign is a targeted program towards corporations. This may include sponsorship opportunities, targeted solicitations and foundation support. A corporate campaign is an effective way by both enlarging existing annual gifts and of drawing in new corporate donors.
Affinity Group Development
Affinity Group Development is an effective method of garnering support for an organization. This group(s) are added to a development program to: 1. raise funds; 2. raise awareness of the organization’s mission and vision for the future; and 3. Increase financial and human capital.
A capital campaign is most commonly conducted for new facilities, renovations, equipment and endowment building. A capital campaign has a set goal, beginning and end, a plan, a case statement, and pre-determined expenses.
An organization uses a fundraising plan as the foundation to begin and strengthen its fundraising efforts. It is the “roadmap” that defines the future development of a nonprofit. For example, a fundraising plan should include a case for support, a goal, sources of gifts, a gift range chart and solicitation strategies, just to name a few.
