What types of donations are there and how do they affect the success of a fundraiser?
What is the process of
creating a fund raising

Types of donations:
These types of donations are individual because they are given from one's personal income, not a company's fund.
These include; family, friends, workers,doctor, dentist, neighbors, school communities, parents affiliates, or anyone with an affinity for your cause.
Crowd funding
"A collective effort of people pooling money together" (Wikipedia:Crowd funding). They handle things like disaster relief,political campaigns, and pressing issues.
Corporate donation
A corporate donation is money given to a charity from an established business.
Most corporate donations, are similar to individual donations, they are just done on a bigger scale. Most contributors also expect recognition for their donation from the beneficiary.
State grants:
State governments receive money from the Federal government and this is the money they give out to non-profit organizations. These are the grants that you are more likely to receive.
Action Grant:
given to fund active programs and not research projects
Eligibility standards for grants are made, which makes them easy to obtain.
Develop a relationship with your donor
"Traditionally, fundraising consisted of mostly asking for donations on the street or at people's doors, and this is experiencing very strong growth in the form of face-to face fund raising" (Wikipedia)

4. Event set-up and execution
Making a checklist of everything your event needs makes it less likely for you to miss something the day of your event
Pick a reasonable venue, possibly one that is donated for free
Make sure it is booked for a concrete date
This is where the volunteers come into play, they help run the event. Chances are one person can not run it
The volunteers should also know WHY THEY ARE THERE, meaning their responsibilities and what is expected of them
Proceeds should be kept in a checking account, this makes the money easy to access, especially with online transactions
Thanking your donors and all people who attend is very important, this shows that your appreciate their contribution. This is also another reason to keep contact information of everyone who donates
Send out thank-you cards, e-mails, phone calls, or a small gift in return
6. Practice Makes Perfect
The best way to create the most effective fundraiser is to keep practicing planning
1. Purpose and Goal
Decide what you want your group to accomplish and what cause you are raising money toward
A mission statement is a good way to get that point across
An event can not be run without a main coordinator
2. Leadership & Budget
Budget is important because everything cost money
It is also important to remember that there may be a time line for your event, meaning you have to raise a certain amount of money in a certain amount of time
Volunteers are just as important
This is also a good time in the process in finding a "Target audience"
Creating long and short term goals are also important
"Networking is key" -Amanda Barnard
Networking is used for event advertisement, building donor list, and awareness
Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, Newspaper, Radio, TV media, and Instagram are great ways to advertise
