3 Area: Infrastructure and internal operations Goal: Increase our ability to efficiently run our organization. Objective: Leverage volunteer help. Goal: Add 500 volunteer hours this year We ll find areas where volunteers could provide additional help in the office, with fundraising, and taking tasks away from staff, so staff can focus on things within their area of expertise. Area: Grants Goal: Identify, submit, and get grants from private foundations and civic clubs, for a total of $20,000 in We ll go after key grants that we ve gotten before and use the Foundation Center database to do research and find new ones. We think, based on our research, that we ll get 5 grants at an average of $4,000. Grant Targets Organization Deadline Ask amount Program/Project Notes Action Steps: 1. Identify someone to coordinate the grant effort. 2. Conduct research using the Foundation Center database to identify applicable private foundations. Fundraising Blueprint SAMPLE Annual Fundraising Plan 3

4 3. Create a list of civic clubs that may give. 4. Create a list of upcoming deadlines. 5. Choose the program/project appropriate for each grant/gift. 6. Prepare and submit grant requests. Area: Special events Goal: Raise $10,000 at a program-focused fundraising event held in 2015 with 100 attendees invited by 10 table hosts (assuming banquet tables seating 10 guests). Event details: A program-focused fundraising event is a calculated event that leverages the power of relationships to bring together a group of people who are most likely to care about the nonprofit s programs and be willing to support them. We ll hold our event as a lunch in the Fall. It ll be a one-hour event that will rely on table hosts inviting carefully selected guests. We re planning to have a full event (no empty seats) and receive 75 gifts (75% response rate). Action steps: 1. Designate someone to coordinate the event 4 months before the event 2. Plan the event logistics (date, location, time, 4 months before the event meal, event budget, etc.) 3. Recruit 10 table hosts 3.5 months before the event 4. Train the table hosts and have them start inviting 3 months before the event guests 5. Plan the program 1 month before the event 6. Plan the Ask and choose the amounts 1 month before the event 7. Create the pledge cards and any other materials 2 weeks before the event 8. Ask table hosts for contact info for their guests 7-10 days before the event 9. Call guests to remind them about the event 3 days before the event 10. Prepare registration materials 2 days before the event 11. Double-check the details 1 day before the event 12. Arrive early and set up Event day 13. Send out thank you letters to everyone who gave 1 day after event 14. Do an event post-mortem Within 5 days after the event Fundraising Blueprint SAMPLE Annual Fundraising Plan 4

5 Area: Individuals Goal: Raise $40,000 from individual donors through appeals sent in October, December, and March, May, and August. Our goal is to renew 400 of our current and past donors, volunteers, and supporters. Our current list of donors is about 800. We know from last year that some donors will give multiple times and others will give only once. Our goal is 50% renewal rate from our current donors (which we ll calculate at the end of the year). Appeals: October appeal: 100 donors (12.5% response rate) x $50 avg gift = $5,000 December year-end appeal: 200 donors (25% response rate) x $100 avg gift = $20,000 March appeal: 100 donors (12.5% response rate) x $50 avg gift = $5,000 May appeal: 100 donors (12.5% response rate) x $50 avg gift = $5,000 August appeal: 100 donors (12.5% response rate) x $50 avg gift = $5,000 Action items for each print appeal: 1. Update the mailing list 2 months before mail date 2. Draft the letter 1.5 months before mail date 3. Complete any layout/design work 1 month before mail date 4. Final review/revisions 3 weeks before mail date 5. Print letters 2 weeks before mail date 6. Fold, stuff letters, add postage 1 week before mail date 7. Mail letters Mail Date 8. Monitor responses Up to 3 months after mail date 9.

Assess performance (open rate, click 2 months after send date through rate, average gift size, % response: handle bounces) Fundraising Blueprint SAMPLE Annual Fundraising Plan 5

6 Area: Major Gifts Goal: Raise $20,000 from 10 major donors We ll focus on our top 10 donor prospects and work to get a $2,000 from each one OUTSIDE of our event and our renewal appeals. We ll create customized cultivation plans for each one. Top 10 prospects: Name Linkage Interest Ability Notes Area: Other fundraising Goal: Generate $10,000 from other sources Objective: Raise $5,000 from online giving We ll ask our Facebook fans once a week or so to support our activities, especially when we have cases with significant medical needs. Based on our history of online giving, we expect to have an average of 10 gifts per month at an average of $50 per gift for a total of $3,000. Also based on our history, we expect to raise $2,000 for specific animals as needed. Fundraising Blueprint SAMPLE Annual Fundraising Plan 6

7 Objective: Raise $2,500 from 500 T-shirt sales We have a super cute design for a new T-shirt that we plan to sell online on our Facebook page and our website throughout the year. We ll also offer it at adoption events and any other activities where we re in the public. T-shirts will cost us about $5 to print and we plan to sell them for $10 for a profit of $5 per shirt. If we sell 500 shirts with a $5 profit, we ll clear $2,500. We will not consider these people as donors since they ve received something in return. Although we will create a process for converting these folks to donors, and hope to see 50 of them make a donation in addition to their T-shirt purchase. Objective: Raise $1,500 from general donations We often receive donations at adoption events, website visitors, Memorials and Honorariums, Birthday gifts, and other various sources. Based on our history, we estimate we ll raise $1,500 from general donations this year. Also based on our history, we estimate there will be about 100 gifts. Objective: Raise $1,000 at Adoption Events Every month, we hold adoption events at various locations in the community, including PetSmart. We ll ask people to consider making a donation to help us. We hope to raise $1,000 from 50 people in $20 gifts. Area: Marketing Goal: Give at least 1 presentation each month to church groups, civic clubs, or other gatherings of potential supporters. We will find civic clubs, garden clubs, church groups and other places where we can give a presentation on our work each month. We ll make sure to include a How You Can Help sheet for every attendee. Goal: Get at least 4 stories in the local news this year. We will send a press release of pertinent stories regularly to the local news media. We ll also work to develop relationships with reporters and news managers. Fundraising Blueprint SAMPLE Annual Fundraising Plan 7

8 Area: Communications Goal: Maintain donor communications and strengthen relationships through a monthly newsletter. Each newsletter will have a theme and will feature a story about an animal we ve saved. Themes and Schedule Send date Theme Writers Notes July 1 August 1 September 1 October 1 November 1 December 1 January 1 February 1 March 1 April 1 May 1 June 1 Freedom rides Dog Days of Summer Back to school pet training Halloween keep your pet safe Thanksgiving we re grateful for our supporters Holiday season Winter keep your pet healthy in the cold Valentine s Day show your pet some love Going green why your pet sometimes eats grass Kitten season Mother s Day spay Father s Day - neuter Goal: Maintain donor relationships by sending a tax letter summarizing the donor s gifts.
