Everyone at some point in their lives are asked to raise money for things whether a high school baseball tournament trip or part of a campaign. There are some fundamental elements to successfully raise money for all types of causes. My seven keys to successful fundraising will help all those who want to effectively put a plan in place and meet the fundraising goal. I will use some of my NFL and fundraising experiences as examples of how to successfully fund raise.
Neuroscientist Uri Hasson researches the basis of human communication, and experiments from his lab reveal that even across different languages, our brains show similar activity, or become "aligned," when we hear the same idea or story. This amazing neural mechanism allows us to transmit brain patterns, sharing memories and knowledge. "We can communicate because we have a common code that presents meaning," Hasson says.
Eric Stowe is the Founder and Director of Splash (www.splash.org), an international nonprofit dedicated to clean water for kids living in urban poverty. This quickly scaling organization ensures safe water daily for more than 250,000 children in orphanages, schools, shelters, and hospitals in 7 countries— and Splash will soon be doing so for more than 1 million children. More important than getting safe water flowing, though, Splash is keenly focused on making sure their projects last by building the local businesses and support that will replace their charity for the long haul. Splash thus wants to be one of the first water organizations to achieve long term success by "killing their organization" in every country they work in.
