Do you have more ideas than you know what to do with?
Or does your board of directors have more ideas for you than you can possibly act on? Are they all for new fundraising events? (don’t get me started on this … that’s another post)
How do you evaluate fundraising ideas and decide which ones to pursue?
My friends Alice Ferris and Jim Anderson at GoalBusters Consulting have simplified this process with their great “Evaluation Sheet for New Fundraising Ideas.” This tool lets you evaluate new fundraising ideas along the following criteria:
- Potential revenue
- Likely success
- Mission match (my favorite one)
You end up with a simple score for each idea and can quickly see which idea makes the most sense to pursue.
My bonus tip is to score your current fundraising ideas at the same time. This works really well if you have a committee that is change averse … once they see the numbers they are typically more open to a discussion.
