Fund raising is essential for the survival of a nonprofit agency. It is the process of requesting contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations and government sources. Part of fund raising is developing a plan that includes projecting the needs of the organization and selecting strategies for meeting financial goals. The board of directors (the nonprofit's leaders) and the development director, if there is one, are responsible for the plan, which may be carried out by staff, board members and volunteers.
