Politics are a costly affair and fundraising activities can make the difference between success and total frustration. Fundraising is, however, an endeavour full of pitfalls. So let’s plough through the most common mistakes.

2. Uncoordinated campaign management
To utilise the full capacity of a campaign, everybody involved must have a concrete idea of the entire strategy. This includes, for example, knowing which specific events will be organised and how donations can be accepted.
