Helpful Hints to Hosting a Fund Drive

Fund drives can be implemented in conjucntion with food drives or they can be organizaed on their own depending on a number of factors such as the type of group organizing the campaign or the location of the campaign.

Either way the role of the coordinator of this fund drive is extremely important to the success of the campaign.

In addition, we have developed a few documents to help you plan a successful food drive. They are located on the right under On the Topic.
