Nonprofit Fundraising
KBLX 102.9 FM Radio Nonprofit Weekend Tip!
You need Flash Player in order to view this.
Traditional nonprofit fund raising consist of ; Individual giving,  Fundraising Events, Direct mailing (snail mail)and Grant Writing
Dwindling funds however require creative thinking, a paradigm shift, stepping outside the box of fund raising traditions and testing new methods of raising money
Today every nonprofit must expand its fund raising methods by trying new approaches ...  CASH is Critical
But do not over look the other very valuable resources; people skills;contractors, carpet layers, painters, mechanics, caterers, bankers and more that bring cash valued resources and their professional contacts which add value to your nonprofit. By using human resources you can put together a network of people who will provide needed resources and who will form networks to further support your organization.
Social media campaigns and merchandise sales are used by many nonprofits today to raise funds.  Before selling items make sure you are in compliance with Nonprofit government tax laws and you are filing the appropriate tax forms in addition to your 990.
“The answer is Creativity – stepping outside the box and testing new methods of raising money for your organization. Not every tactic will work for every group, so testing is key, but every charity should be constantly expanding its fund raising repertoire and testing new tactics.” 
·        Target smaller givers
·        Massive outreach using social media emphasizing smaller giving amounts (an example; the penny drives, nickel drives, dollar drives using large water cooler bottles in strategic locations where young people as well as older adults could participate … social media can be used to create the same scenario)

Here in our country it is a bit different from there. While gathering resources for a research paper, I read the things and in our country there are about 5,6 compliance organizations working under one ministry.
