Fundraising Costs – Standards for Excellence Educational Resource Packet (23)


It is important that nonprofit organizations are able to control their fundraising costs to devote a substantial portion of their resources to achieving their missions. Public confidence in an organization – and the nonprofit sector as a whole – can diminish when large amounts of money are spent on fundraising and little expended on programs that advance an organization’s mission. This educational packet helps you understand how to control the cost of raising money, and how to develop a ratio of fundraising to costs.

Attached at the end of this packet you will find the customizable companion documents:

  • Typical Fundraising Event Expenses
  • A Nonprofit’s Typical Fundraising Expenses
