Come Up With a Fundraising Budget
By spring, the end of fundraising season is in sight—but inevitably the fundraising requests from school, church/synagogue and extracurricular programs will be back soon enough!

Use this number to figure out what your ideal budget would be for these fundraising pleas. Write that down somewhere you won’t lose it and keep it in mind over the coming year, straight through to Christmas wrapping paper season.
