Where this Resource comes from
This resource was developed by Wellington Water Watchers program manager, Dani Lindamood.
Wellington Water Watchers began in 2007 as a grassroots organization to oppose Nestlé Water Canada’s local water-bottling operations in Wellington County, Ontario, Canada. Today, they support grassroots leaders on the frontlines of water protection. They use a campaign-based approach to mobilize public support to protect water, and help connect the dots between local and systemic issues to move communities toward water justice.
Like many, the Water Watchers team tried various approaches to fundraising tracking. While there is no universal solution, the hope is that the template their team developed and uses provides useful direction.
Purpose and relevance
This resource is intended for either grassroots activist groups, grassroots support staff or NGO staff. It is meant for tracking fundraising. It is NOT meant for tracking how finances are spent or managed.
This resource is formatted as a template, and is presented as an excel spreadsheet. It includes separate sheets and formulas to more easily track various fundraising sources.
