Fundraising Policies, Guidelines and Application

Before you plan to hold an event to raise funds for your Dayton Foundation fund, there are a few things you need to know.

For some donors, raising funds from other sources is an important part in growing their Dayton Foundation fund and making a larger impact for their cause. Before you start planning a fundraising event or conduct another solicitation for your fund or cause, please contact us.

We will walk you through the steps to ensure that your fundraiser (events, mailings/emails, verbal requests, Facebook fundraisers and more) meets with the Foundation’s policies and guidelines. This is a necessary and important step as a component fund under The Dayton Foundation’s IRS-approved nonprofit status.

Considering opening a fund? Give us a call.

The Dayton Foundation’s development team will work with you and your financial or legal advisor to customize a plan that will enhance your charitable goals and offer you significant tax advantages.
