Fraternity fundraising for your philanthropy can be a challenge. The bigger the group you have the more difficult it is to keep all your brothers happy all the time. However, if you handle the organizational aspects of your fundraiser in an efficient way, you’ll leave yourself some breathing room.
Take on all the accounting first, so that you can present the numbers to your brothers and let them understand the reality of your financial situation. Tell the donors how the money will be used and be accountable for the money that is raised.
Planning fundraising ideas is a simple matter of understanding your monetary needs, what your supporters will want to buy, and talking to your group about what they would like to sell. If you are the organizer keep your group on topic and don’t allow too much wandering onto ideas that aren’t going anywhere. (Source: http://www.fundraising-ideas.com)
