From the perspicacious Sara Juli and her current class at The Field: Project Budgets and Strategies
Your fundraising strategy should make sense for you and only you. What works for someone else may not be your best approach. Also, have you asked yourself, "do I even WANT to fundraise?" There is no need to spend time developing a strategy if you're not interested in executing it. Asking people and places for money cuts to the core of the issues. Before you begin designing your personalized fundraising plan, make sure it's the right way to go, and that you're interested in pursuing it.
