Fund raising checklist
Fund raising can be a lengthy and time consuming process and considerable thought needs to go into the applications you will make to maximise your chances of success.
Your application will be competing with many others; why should the donor select your over the others? Here are some prompts to help clarify your thoughts.
In no more than two sentences,
What is the purpose of your organisation?
What is the legal status of your organisation?
What is the nature of the problem/ need you are trying to address?
What evidence do you have that this is a real need rather than a perceived one?
Why is your organisation best placed/the most appropriate to address the problem?
How will you tackle the problem and who will you involve?
How much will the project cost in total and how much are you seeking from the funder?
Where will the rest of the money come from?
How will the funding be managed/accounted for?
How will you monitor the project and what will success look like?
Have you had any other successful projects in the past?
Is this a time limited project? If so, what will the long term benefits be? If not, where will future funding come from?
Have you applied elsewhere for funding for this project/service and what was the result?
