Fundraising Strategies for Community Organizations to Support Major Activities: A Case Study of Southeast Effective Development (S.E.E.D.).
This case study of successful fund raising by a Seattle community coalition is intended to provide information to other community groups as they develop fund raising efforts. The case study begins with a presentation of information gleaned from a review of past newsletters and financial statements of the Southeast Effective Development (S.E.E.D.) community coalition. In this opening section, information is presented on the block grant funds which have been S.E.E.D.'s major source of financial support in the past, changes of focus throughout S.E.E.D.'s existence, and soliciting funds from private companies and agencies. In the next section, S.E.E.D.'s fund raising strategies are outlined. Topics discussed include designing and submitting proposals for funding, fund raising responsibilities, identifying concerns and goals of potential fund raising sources, searching for funds to support a particular program, and taking advantage of opportunities and community connections. The appendix which concludes the document presents a list of questions about the various grants and donations mentioned in S.E.E.D.'s newsletters and financial statements, fund raising strategies and policies, and S.E.E.D.'s major sources of financial support. The appendix also includes a 1976-1977 annual report of S.E.E.D., a 1978 financial statement, and notes to the financial statement. (DB)
