How to Raise Funds for NGOs

To start with a quote by Winston Churchill: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

An NGO is a non-profit organization for the welfare of the society. Since this is for good cause, many will join their hands. Creating awareness, making people aware of our motive and initiating them to fund is a big task. A single person can’t spare the entire expenses of this cause. Collecting funds is the key for an NGO to run. There are various methods to raise funds.

Initially, we must make our goal more effective. It must be worth enough to create impact among the people. We can spread awareness through WhatsApp link, Facebook or Instagram stories and even through twitter tweets. In this era of spreading many messages in the society, spreading values has magnificent meaning and is important. 

A few of the proven Methods of fund raising for NGOs are;

  • CSR Funding 
  • Donations by Philanthropists 
  • Donations through Projects
  • Donations by Government
  • Competitions in case of StartUps

We can also carry out campaigns in schools and colleges as students are more open to be influenced to good deeds. Nurturing righteousness in the minds of young people will create good fortune in youngsters’ mind and it will also help for the betterment of humankind.

We can also create awareness by organizing program in public places as people will donate better if they see others doing. Placing donation boxes in restaurants, hospitals, temples is a good plan. People who don’t find time to go to a place and donate, will find these methods as easy way to contribute.  We must seek help from our friends and relatives and they will also suggest some valuable time and idea for funding. Making people who are truly benefitted to spread awareness will create the best impact.   

We must also effectively use the funds that we collect. Every penny of donations must go only for the needy in an effective way. Keeping the expenses record clean is a productive way to strengthen trust on us for the society. Donating gives a person, a great satisfaction among ourselves. No one has ever become poor by giving. We can make people to think in this way and urge them to fund.
