Relationship-based fundraising is the foundation of long-term success. We have an in-depth, experiential knowledge of fundraising—both principles and practice—and its application to Annual Funds, Membership Programs, Planned Giving and Capital and Endowment projects.
Strategic focus is essential to achieve annual objectives or to accomplish lengthy projects such as capital campaigns. You need a customized plan to maximize the resources available for the project. We will build it together, and then we will provide clear, concise project management that keeps the process moving yet remains attentive to the countless details.
Every fundraising program or project exists in the context of a larger organization, community and industry. Strategic fundraising and communication must go hand in hand with strategic organization development. We work with you to analyze and better understand current systems and processes, build your organization’s infrastructure, and plan for a sustainable future in the context of trends and best practices and innovation in the nonprofit sector.
With our strength in hard analytical tools, from software to database systems, we guide you in essential tracking of prospects and project components. Through a comprehensive analysis of your data, we create a Donor Strategy Map that segments donors based upon their giving history and capacity, and provides clear strategies for effective acquisition, renewal, upgrades, and stewardship.
Effective communication is critical for success, whether it relates to articulating your vision or mobilizing staff and volunteers to advocate for your mission. It's your story, and we support you to tell it in the most compelling ways possible. Through group facilitation and training we help bring people together and empower them to fulfill their strategic roles.
