WHAT IS FUNDRAISING STRATEGY?

The words ‘strategy’ and ‘strategic’ are arguably among the most misused words in management and leadership. In fundraising practice, as with many other areas of specialty, the use of ‘strategic’ as an adjective or label often occurs and usually implies something better than what might otherwise be the case. So what is a strategy? Can you define what the word means in 25 words or less? What is it that sets ‘fundraising strategy’ apart from anything else in fundraising?
