Do you wish you had a roadmap that showed you exactly what you need to do to achieve your nonprofit's fundraising and development goals? An effective nonprofit fundraising plan can do just that. While many nonprofit fundraising plans simply sit on a shelf gathering dust, there IS a way to build a better plan you'll actually use - one that maps your fundraising goals to your organization's goals and strategic plans, defines tangible, achievable KPIs for each of your campaigns, helps you prioritize and make time for what matters, and most importantly, ensures that your fundraising drives the revenue your nonprofit needs to advance its mission.
Ready to get started? Find more guidance, along more examples and tools you can use to build your plan, by downloading Essential Nonprofit Fundraising Plan Template.
Through our work with a wide variety of nonprofits, we've developed a proven approach to nonprofit fundraising planning, as well as a format that just works. You'll get access to the entire 40-page template, which is a mix of instructions and exercises to help you think through your fundraising plan and worksheets that, when used together, will form your new fundraising plan. We'll send you both a PDF file you can print and fill in, and a Google Slides file you can duplicate to create your own digital copy of your marketing plan. The Google Slides format can also be downloaded as a Powerpoint file, though some formatting may not carry over perfectly.
How is the template intended to be used?
There are two ways to use the template:
1. Duplicate the Google Slides file and use it as a starting point for your own fundraising plan slides. You can add and delete pages as needed while you work.
2. Download the PDF and write on the worksheets. Then, use your work to inform the development of a fundraising plan in the format you prefer.
You'll get access to both options when you fill out the form above.
