How do I find Not-Fot-Profit organizations that need a fund raiser?

Organizations such as:
* Faith Based Organizations
* Schools & PTA groups
* Extracurricular Groups
* Civic Organizations
* Foundations
* Condominium and Homeowners Associations
* Volunteer and Community Service Organizations

The organization needs to be in the states of MA, NY, NJ, CT or PA.

Thanks for your assistance.

  • Word of mouth.
    And by the way almost every Non profit needs a fundraisers.
    I would put together a pro folio (if you don't already have one).

  • I'm sorry I miss understood your question. Find the person or persons in charge of finance and call and ask to share your presentation.

  • Contact the types of organizations that you listed. Send out letters stating that you offer fundraising then follow up with phone calls to see if they may be interested. Have a portfolio of what you sell, an example of the profit they can earn, a time-line of how long it would take from start to finish, a list of what you supply(samples, order forms, catalogs) It takes time but after you get your first fundraiser done, then you can have a letter of recommendation and a dollar amount to show the success.

  • Look on the websites of the types of organizations you're interested in working for in the areas you're interested in living. Use the keyword "fundraiser".
