Thursday, January 29, 2015 — and a BIG Top of the morning to all my
friends! Here’s my SECOND blog this week. Here goes the ramblings from a
CRAZY but creative mind …
Well, I was blown away to find out that there are actually people out
there who are reading my BLOG — WOW! Thanks so much. I hope I offer
something valuable today because I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the
moment with all of the fundraising that’s going on right now to help
fund our programs in 2015. Fundraising– what does that mean, really? So I
looked it up in the dictionary.
Fundraising or fund raising (also known as "development") is the process of gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies (see also crowd funding). Although fundraising typically refers to efforts to gather money for non-profit organizations,
it is sometimes used to refer to the identification and solicitation of
investors or other sources of capital for for-profit enterprises.
Traditionally, fundraising consisted mostly of asking for donations on
the street or at people’s doors, and this is experiencing very strong
growth in the form of face-to-face fundraising,
but new forms of fundraising such as online fundraising have emerged in
recent years, though these are often based on older methods such as grassroots fundraising.
