Enterprise Community Partners has a great fundraising tutorial on their site. It's comprised of 7 sections that give you a comprehensive guide to the fundraising process:

  1. Getting Ready
  2. The Process Starts with Identifying Prosepcts
  3. Cultivation
  4. Solicitation: Be Prepared
  5. The Ask: Personal Solicitation
  6. Preparing and Submitting a Proposal
  7. Stewardship/Donor Relations

All of the segments are word docs; contained in those docs are checklists, charts, templates and other tools to help you organize and streamline your fundraising approach. And it's meant for the novice fundraiser, as well as those with more experience, so there's great how-to information provided along the way.
