Step by Step Fundraising is one of the most unique sites in our industry. We consider ourselves a complete fundraiser resource. What does that mean? We believe we offer a complete overview of fundraisers for non profits, schools and other groups. We've been writing about fundraiser ideas and concepts for more than 10 years.
We've authored 7 books on far reaching fundraising concepts from raffles to raising money by mail. Those books are available here on our website.
Recently we decided to start offering fundraising products in addition to our e books and blog. We are being extremely cautious to bring you only the best fundraiser ideas. There are lots of sites that offer every fundraising product known to man. We will only offer products that are tried and proven fundraisers. So we hope you will let us help the next time you plan to raise money.
