## How to Calculate Percent to Goal

To begin tracking your progress towards a goal, first determine the specific objective you want to achieve.

For instance, if you want to raise $2,500, your goal would be to collect that amount in donations. Next, measure your progress toward your goal. For example, if you received a$100 donation from one donor and a $450 donation from another, you would have$550 raised towards your $2,500 goal. To determine the percentage of progress you have made towards your goal, divide your progress by your target. For this example, divide$550 by \$2,500 to get 0.22.

Finally, multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage. Here we will multiply 0.22 by 100 to get 22 percent.
