How to Reach Fundraising Goals through Group Unity

Reach your group's sales goals by staying unified

Some groups know how to reach fundraising goals better than others. Groups that achieve their goal understand that raising money becomes much easier if they’re united. The question is how do we achieve unity? To ensure that your organization is unified, it will be important to ask yourself the following questions.

How committed are your members? Don't put the chicken before the egg. Before you consider a sales project, make sure you know how committed your members are to your goals and objectives.

In other words, do your members believe in the group’s direction and overall vision? Are their needs being met within the group? Once you know that your group is unified and willing to work together, then you can start talking about a sales project.

Common Fundraising Goal

Can you get your group behind the same sales goal? Your team may have various objectives. The needs of some members will be obvious, while others may require some thought. The issue may be prioritizing your goals and determining what to tackle first. It may also be a good idea to ask your group members what they think. Make a list and do a survey. On the other hand, if you want to make the decision yourself, just make sure everyone’s on board with your goal.

Have a Sales Kickoff Meeting

Finally, once you're ready to start, make sure and have an organized kickoff meeting. This will ensure that everyone’s on the same page and knows what needs to be accomplished.
