Fundraising for your park group: getting started

November 29, 2018

Fundraising is a great way to boost the impact of what your community park group’s work. With some funding, you can host larger events and undertake the kinds of projects that involve significant materials and paid labour.

In addition to raising money for your initiatives, fundraising can help your group form partnerships and increase your ability to connect to new audiences. It’s not difficult, but like anything, you need to ramp up your focus and skills. Start small, set achievable goals and gradually develop your group’s capacity to raise and steward funds over time.

Whatever your goal, remember that all fundraising is also “friend-raising.”In other words, it’s an opportunity to connect with new people to share your group’s awesome work in the park.
