You also need to set target on how many funds you need to raise. This stage includes preparing a list of potential people who would be willing to contribute for a social cause.

The request and the formal note of thank you should be well drafted and rehearsed a couple of times by the volunteers who are going to move around for raising funds. If young children are going to be involved in the fundraising campaign, it makes sense to brief them thoroughly about the cause and how to approach potential people. You should also make it a point to brief and inform their parents about their participation in the fundraising drive. You could brief them through email or by a telephonic conversation or even meet them personally whichever is convenient to both the parties.
