The premise of fundraising for social change is simple:

it is possible to raise the money you need to do the work you want. 

It is not necessary to compromise your values or change your programs

and it doesn’t matter if you work in a rural or urban community.
Fundraising is also part of community organizing and can be built into everything an organization does.
