Evolution of Fundraising in India ??
Every organization wants to raise more and spend less to do it Every organization can raise more by being more strategic But most organisations are dependent on Foreign donors and Government
What is Fundraising? “The art of getting people to give you what you want, where and when you want it, for the work of you do” Fundraising is not only about money-It is about RELATIONSHIPS
Giving in USA and UK (2008) Population U.S.A. 300 million U.K. 60 million Amount Given US $306 billionUS $51 billion Amount Per Head of Population US $1020US $850
India Individuals/Corporates- Rs 9000 cr Funds from Abroad(FCRA)-Rs 12,000 cr (Home Ministry) Government- Rs 18,000 cr (258 Departments) Potential > $ 15 Billion or Rs 70,000 cr
POOR FUNDRAISING--WHY SO?? Governance/Board/Leadership? No Investment Strategic Direction Lack of Training facility Not perceived as CAREER option Dependence - on government and foreign funding Inadequate Communication?
Limitations with current situation Breeds dependency Does not build local support for causes Creates the perception that NGOs receive a lot-- don't need local support Public is unaware of social issues/needs/role Boards and leadership are seldom actively supportive Every one wants big bucks without working towards it

Resent or Recognise
People who benefit from economic growth cannot be oblivious of their obligations to the state. -Sonia Gandhi
We need not just a literate youth but a skilled youth, with skills which can fetch them gainful employment. As our economy booms….. Our PM Aug 06
A country of dazzling prosperity is also a country of dehumanizing poverty. A land of perpetual struggle is also a land of bursting opportunities. -Sonia Gandhi
Indian Scene Upwardly - mobile society OVER A MILLION HIGH NET WORTH INDIVIDUALS BUT NO ONE ADDRESSING THEM Many hundred thousand MILLIONAIRES IN DOLLAR TERMS Non Resident Indians support extensive-Rs 9000 crore each in 2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008
Indian Scene contd.. Media - state of the art mass communication available NGO – sector is big but not very well organised Lack of support for Fundraising Fundraising Territory almost virgin
Scenario Fundraisers - Only a fraction of 1% of NGO’s have one. This need to change India needs a “Leap Frog Strategy” for creating fundraisers urgently Quantity-Quickly-Quality
Writing on the wall Self Sustainability – Everyone identifies that there is an immediate need Promoting Credibility All over the world NGOs have their own fundraising agenda and their credibility is evaluated by the number of ‘Individual Supporters‘ ?? Low percentage of the donors money reaches the community
People give because they are asked!
Collecting viz-a-viz Fundraising
Success in Fundraising-1 A systematic and planned approach Investment in staff and support Investment in building relationships? Patience combined with action? Readiness to listen
Success in Fundraising-2 A strong and exciting case for support? A Urgent and compelling needs Realistic and potential donors Strong internal and external leadership? Readiness for fundraising
Good fundraising rests on four foundations
Successes UNICEF, WV,GP,CRY,Oxfam,HI,SC Akshaya Patra Pratham Jago Re
Are you ready? Are you well Governed and Managed? Do you have a strategic plan? (Vision, Mission, Values and Strategy) Are you clear exactly what you want and for what? Can you demonstrate results? Do people know you? Can you provide donors with what they require in return?
What Next? Make Fundraising a PRIORITY. “The route to crores of Rupees and lakhon naukrian is through Fundraising” “No one can stop an idea whose time has come”-Our PM Can we do without this? Only at our own peril.
The best way for any NGO to get more money is to show that the money it raised is well used. which means clever fund-raising, cautious spending and the precise measurement of outcomes
People often describe Activities, instead of Achievements. Activities do not make headlines- Achievements do
Change the World You can change the fundraising scenario in India in such a way, that it is beyond what we can foresee today.
So who is doing what?? Government?? Corporates Funding Agencies Media NGOs Philanthropists
