S-O-A-R Fundraising Exercise

This document helps an organization explore and evaluate its fundraising efforts through a four-part S-O-A-R (strengths, opportunities, aspirations and recommendations) exercise that prompts the organization to evaluate its strengths and successes; identify opportunities for growth and expansion in donor and partner relationships; imagine its aspirations for the future; and develop recommendations for converting priority donors and stakeholders into revenue generators for the organization. The document provides specific questions for the organization to answer in each stage of the exercise.
