The National Project on Sharing Resources: (1995)

Developing Models of Collective Fundraising for National Women's and Girls' Organizations

This Executive Summary discusses a project developed to research models, strategies, and structures for collaborative fundraising and resource development within the women's sector.

Women's groups face enormous barriers to securing adequate funding. Traditional funding sources give predominantly to gender neutral services and programming. Government funding is dwindling, presenting major challenges for the financial future for national equality-seeking women's groups.

Women's groups recognize the need to employ new fundraising strategies and reach new markets. However, they are caught in a vicious cycle. The largest obstacles to launching new fundraising initiatives include lack of staff and volunteer time and the lack of financial resources. This project was envisioned as the first step toward breaking that cycle.
