        It is really touching to have a fundraising since you know that you helped a lot of people because of it. Fundraising is the process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies. Non-profit organizations, surprisingly, really pay a lot of cash to raise money, so much so that little, in some cases, really goes toward the cause the charity asserts to be working towards. For instance, Bloomberg recently found in a study that InfoCision, a telemarketing company, was pocketing up to 100 percent of the contributed funds soliciting donations for several charities.
