Fundraising managers are people who manage the fundraising department for an organization or nonprofit entity. They are responsible for overseeing all the fundraising functions of the department. Responsibilities include managing the budget, managing workers or volunteers, organizing events, developing donors, and grant writing. These managers must create effective strategies for maximizing donations.
Managers are the driving force behind fundraising efforts. Without their expertise and efforts the company or entity will not have the funds to continue with their work. For a nonprofit organization, the life of the organization is in the hands of the manager. The manager oversees workforce of paid or volunteer individuals and must keep them on task. They create, teach, lead, and manage the people responsible for bringing in the donations.
