Mobilizing adequate support for a project goes a long way to place high responsibility on the project coordinator. It is a known fact that it takes a man to conceive a vision but a team to birth it. This means no matter how small your project may seem, you need support at varying levels. Finance is one support you cannot do without. All through the project implementation you need money. How much you need depends on your project type.
So how can you ensure adequate supply of money amongst other resources?
Firstly you must be able to develop an action plan that readily shows stage by stage financial expectation/ position of your project. Secondly your project plan should be such that shows the intrinsic value and target of the project.
Thirdly carefully make a list of individuals or organization who have their interest along your project line. These are your team members. When you can secure their partnership their support is in evitable. As you gain their support through partnership, be accountable. Make your project serve them especially through free adverts and public acknowledgements. The focus of using all the above mentioned methods is to increase and secure partnership from all quarters which will positively impact on your financial capacity to complete your project.
Another way to raise money for your project is to organize sales. This can be a bit tasking but very rewarding. You are to encourage people (e.g. family and friends) to donate materials or items (household utensils, shoes, bags, books etc.) that they no longer need but of fairly good quality. It could also be recycled products, just make sure it is something that can serve purpose for whoever will buy it. Find an open space (market, eatery, bus station, religious gathering and other public places) where these can be displayed for sales at very affordable price. The sales proceed is strictly for your project implementation.
You can also use strong publicity to create an awareness. This is better done by carrying out social responsibilities using your project as a point of contact. It is especially good for projects which are community based.
Sporting activities is another good way of bringing people together to get them acquainted with your project. This can be done by organizing novelty or inter street football matches, games and other sporting events, note that the outdoor games are better because it tends to attract a larger audience. While seeking for sponsorship for the sporting event you introduce your project. Finally the social Media is a very good platform to reach out on a wider range.
