Your March 2021 Fundraising Action Plan

The first full month of Spring is a busy one full of important fundraising opportunities for organizations that focus on conservation, environmental causes, literacy and health education.

April is also National Volunteer Month and volunteerism is an all important aspect of any nonprofit or faith-based organization's mission. Most organizations cannot operate or be successful without volunteers so make a plan to celebrate and reward your volunteers during the month of April.

April Fundraising Ideas:

1. Plan a Day of Giving – Celebrate an important April date of significance to your organization by coordinating a day of giving. This could the day that your organization was founded or another important milestone that not only can be a great way to raise funds but also highlight your organization. The tools that you can utilize to execute your day of giving include a special online giving page or a peer-to-peer campaign page.

2. Honor a Volunteer – Celebrate a volunteer each week in April by sharing a story of a special volunteer and telling a story of how they contribute to the success of your organization. Ask people to make a special gift in honor of the featured volunteer.
