How are your organizational fundraising efforts going? Are you seeing a decrease in your funds due to the economy?

If your organization depends on outside
revenue for their budget should you not be maximizing your efforts to raise more money?

How can you generate enough funds to meet your current budget
and also raise money to start new projects?

Most organizations depend on volunteers, especially smaller organizations like youth league teams and leagues, to raise the funds to meet their budget needs.

Many look at fundraising efforts as a neccessarry evil and sadly make the same mistakes annually when raising money.

Listed below are five common mistakes that if corrected, could turn your fundraising efforts
into "fun-raising" efforts this year.

1. No Fundraising Plan: It's hard to get anywhere without the right road map.

2. Improper Goal Setting: Understand the difference between types of goals and communicate this to your group.

3. Not Completing a Cost Analysis: How much do you really need?

4. Improper Timeline: Communicate to everyone your timeline and use the proper timeline to raise your funds.

5. Ignoring Your Network: Take account of who is in your group.

6. Lack of Motivation: Don't turn off those helping you by using the wrong motivational techniques.
