One of the most essential, but poorly
  organised and executed tasks of our
            sporting system
    Three essential Fundraising Considerations

   Long term planning of a fundraising campaign

   Organising the individual fundraisers
     (Set dates, Identify tasks, and divide workload)

   Motivating Task Force
        Overcome perceptions of fundraising being an odious task
        Make it enjoyable

    larger possible fundraisers.

    possible contributors means we have to
    have something of value to sell.
