Fundraising Pyramid

Triangular Diagram


The process of fundraising, meaning gathering the contributions of money on the voluntary basis in a way of requesting donations from different people, different businesses and charitable foundations, as well as governmental agencies, becomes more and more popular these days, being a significant component of any charitable organization activity. Such activity can be referred to making some efforts in order to gather some definite amount of money working for some non-profit organization. Although, the term “fundraising” can sometimes be used for refer to the solicitation and identification of investors as well as other sources of capital for such for-profit enterprises as charitable organizations.

Usually, fundraising is treated as the process of asking for donations on the ongoing basis. It can be done on the street wondering if people want to support some particular idea or some organization as a whole, or those who are in charge for fundraising come to people's doors asking for donations. The last mentioned method is known to be the one experiencing a very strong growth nowadays, as such face-to-face fundraising is known to be the most effective. At the same time, there are many new forms of fundraising exist, such as an online one being emerged and highly successful in the recent years. Although, even online fundraising is often based on the old methods such as so called “grassroots” fundraising.

The mentioned “grassroots” movement is often known to be referenced to a political one, but it is basically the one that uses people standing in some district on the street supporting some economic or political movement. The grassroots organizations are known to be using the collective actions from the very local level for effecting some changes at other levels, such as regional, local, international or simply national ones. Such movements are usually in association with the “bottom-up”, not “top-down” decision making. Sometimes they are considered more spontaneous and natural comparing to the more traditional power structures.

Using self-organization, all the grassroots movements try to encourage all the community members to contribute in a way of taking the responsibility as well as some action in order to support their community, utilizing a couple of different strategies, including registering voters, apart from the fundraising methods, described earlier. Sometimes the members of such organizations try to simply encourage the political conversation, having their objective to increase the mass participation in politics. Beginning as small operating at the local level, the mentioned political movements try to shape the progressive politics by bringing public attention to the regional political concerns.

Thus, fundraising is a very commonly used and significant way for non-profit organizations, such as the mentioned “grassroots” ones, to obtain the necessary amount of money for supporting them in a way of investing their operations. The operations within the term of fundraising are known to be involving lots of different concerns, including the religious as well as philanthropic groups: research organizations, political campaigns, environmental issues, public broadcasters, etc. Some of the charitable organizations even offer the student scholarship merit awards for academic or athletic achievement, ecological and humanitarian concerns, disaster relief, research, human rights, and many other different social issues.

Universities and colleges in the United States of America are mainly in charge or conducting the questionnaires, developing the surveys and doing many other things as part of the main activity — fundraising. Such development programs make a distinction between major campaigns and usual annual fund appeals. Most of the institutions use their hired professional officers for developing and conducting the superior fundraising appeals. Such officers may work for individual colleges, some particular departments or different institutions. The examples may be libraries and athletics.

Similar fundraising efforts are also known to be arranging by most of the religious groups all over the world, being organized on both national and global levels, as well as on a local one. From time to time, such funds start assisting the very basic needs of other people and the collected money may be used only for a certain reason, such as for a particular religious group of people.

Knowing that a fundraising plays a huge role in different political campaigns, it is well-known for being a highly controversial topic in American politics. For example, the political action committees are the most widely known organizations, especially in the United States of America, for backing their candidates as well as political parties through others. Also, a few advocacy organizations are nowadays involved in the process of fundraising for so called “for-or-against policy” issues in order to influence the legislation.

Hotel Network Topology Diagram →

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network. On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.Hotel Network Topology Diagram *

ERD Symbols and Meanings →

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling. An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.ERD Symbols and Meanings
