Melbourne Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 14, 2005
Richard Bowen has been helping small, non-profit groups with fundraising programs for years. HeÂs found that most church fund raisers or school fundraisers succeed to whatever extent they do primarily because close supporters, like family and friends, want to help the church or school. But itÂs a lot of work, and sometimes the results donÂt seem as great as they should be, compared to the effort they take.
"Fundraising is never easy, and for small community groups it seems to be getting harder every year," Bowen says. "If these groups are worth while to the community, then it should be worth while to everyone in the community - not just to family and friends of the church or school Â to support their efforts. That is why I created http://www.GoldenRuleFundraising.com, to offer certain insights and suggestions as to how to appeal to more of the community at large, so as to better succeed at fundraising."
Many groups apparently have a new fundraising director every year because, frankly, itÂs a lot of work and people can get burned out. The new, inexperienced fundraising director will often do the same thing that the previous fundraising director did the last time, "requiring more or less the same efforts to get more or less the same results," Bowen says. With that in mind, he developed http://www.GoldenRuleFundraising.com, to give fundraising directors some ideas and insights to consider in preparing for their next fund raiser.
"What if you step Âoutside the boxÂ with a new perspective on fundraising Â what if you give more to donors throughout your community than you ask the donors to give you?!" Bowen asks. That is the essence of what he offers fundraising directors at http://www.GlodenRuleFundraising.com.
"Secrets of Fundraising Success" are available at http://www.GoldenRuleFundraising.com at no cost to fundraising directors, new and experienced alike.
