List for Funders
Jacqueline Beretta

December, 2006

Ideas – wonderful ideas – meaningful and compelling ideas – alas – they aren’t enough anymore. Having a good idea isn’t enough to raise funds. You not only have to have that great idea – but you need a strategic plan, you need goals and a plan to measure your success. Few dollars means more discretion when giving – who is going to steward my contributions in the best manner…that’s what donors are thinking today.

TXNP prepared a list for you to consider when applying for funds.
