How do we get started raising money? We have a critical environmental mission, and we live and work in what Joel Garreau called Ecotopia. Shouldn’t raising money be easier? Is there a recipe? How do we get from where we are to sustainability? Well, it won’t be plug-and-play, exactly, but there are a set of basic tenets for raising money from individuals that we can studiously employ that will help. Join fundraising expert David Allen (Development for Conservation) as we explore the basics of getting started raising money. We will propose, and discuss, ways to think about fundraising, ideas for building and maintaining loyal support, where to start looking for first-time donors, fundraising metrics, and much, much, more.
