Challenges while Fundraising (1 reply and 1 comment)
Hello! In fundraising, is it reasonable to expect that one can ever get away from the feeling that you're chasing people most of the time?
I love this question and totally know what you mean - and it is so true that part of our work can feel like herding cats! One way to make it fun is to create some specific goals, and also do your best to make truly personal connections with your donors and partners. When they want to talk to you - because of who you are, and not just for what you will ask of them - magical things can happen! It sounds like you are doing some amazing work! I am wondering who else has some great ideas and also shared these feelings in the Foundation List community...
Fundraising is the best way to aid the needy people and make a huge difference in the others life. One of my friends has raised his fund for mission humanitaire ( http://www.mission-humanitaire-afrique.org ), who works for the betterment of the people by providing them the assistance in different forms like, supplying them the basic items necessary for the survival, education and medical treatment.
