Scattered efforts waste time and precious program resources. Based on your research, prepare a comprehensive plan to guide your approach to foundations. The plan should be very specific about the scope of foundations you want to reach (local? national?), their focus (one primary concentration? multiple interests?), and how you will try to gain access (phone call? send materials?). Determine how many foundations your organization will contact in the first year and compile a ranked list of target foundations. Make sure timelines and staff assignments appear for all foundation-related fundraising activities outlined in the plan. But even before you start, assess whether you will need technical assistance to formulate an effective plan.
