Team Fundraising Toolkit
Welcome to the AFS-USA Volunteer Fundraising Toolkit, your guide to fundraising for your Team. AFS-USA’s National Development Office (NDO) staff is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the site's content.
The Toolkit provides a variety of resources on fundraising topics that may be helpful to Teams, including sample solicitation and acknowledgement letters that may be adapted for local use. The Toolkit also includes a review of policies and procedures concerning fundraising at AFS-USA.
Each Team’s circumstances and needs are unique, as there is no “right way” to raise funds at the local level. This Toolkit is intended to provide a starting place for your local fundraising strategy. If you need guidance at any stage of your fundraising planning and execution, please contact the NDO.
