Most charitable nonprofits rely upon the generosity of donors for some or all of their funding. Consequently, fundraising is an activity of major importance to the charitable nonprofit community. The National Council of Nonprofits does not provide funding or offer assistance with fundraising, however, your state association of nonprofits offers many different opportunities – such as workshops, webinars, peer learning, and even discounts on products and services that are used by charitable nonprofits to fundraise. And the Foundation Center provides free funding information through more than 400 Funding Network locations, many in public libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers.
