If you’ve been following along with our "How to Save a Place" toolkit series, your plan to save the historic place that matters to you is likely beginning to take shape. But there’s still one significant element that you probably need more guidance on: fundraising.
It takes money to make things happen. Money enables you to hire craftsmen, build advocacy campaigns, purchase materials and equipment, and much more. Asking for funding doesn’t have to be a daunting challenge, though. No matter your approach, there is one universal truth about fundraising: People give because someone asked them.
This toolkit provides you with some fundamental steps for fundraising. If you can put these basics into practice, then you will increase your chances of turning an ask into financial support for your great preservation work.
