MN-PS believes each agency should have the following:

  • Regular solicitation schedule by mail/phone/email at least three times per year.
  • Special holiday giving program.
  • Two major fundraising events per year
    • A signature event that emphasizes major donors.
    • A “low entry fee” event that may be participatory in nature but mission-centered and open to all.
  • Numerous “friend raising” events and activities.
  • Regular training for Board Members leading to fundraising or friend raising by all.
