Grassroots fundraising is changing. Technology is having an impact on how people hear about your organization and make the decision to give funds. All kinds of people from different economic status will support organizations they believe in. Organizations can benefit from mobilizing their staff and supporters and using their database to bring in new money in new ways. AT PTP we’ve learned that taking a more holistic view of raising money for your mission makes for a stronger overall fundraising program. Our integration model of fundraising includes multiple levels of donor participation: grassroots, membership and major donors.
