box_developPairing a contemporary approach with time-honored technique, we nurture the connections that help nonprofits thrive.

We can craft and implement a fund development plan that is right for your organization.

Among the services we offer:

Development Audit – Is your development program is floundering? Build upon your strengths and fill in the gaps with a complete evaluation of the development practices, tools and culture of your organization, recommended strategies to implement short and long term, a recommended annual tactical plan and a series of coaching sessions to assist in implementing the plan.

Board/Leadership Volunteer Fundraising Orientation – One of the most common frustrations for board members and volunteers is the lack of understanding of their role in the fundraising process. For staff, board members who aren’t actively engaged in fundraising is a major point of stress.  We will orient staff members and volunteers to the realities of fundraising in today’s economy – development trends, returns on investment – and guides them through the process of developing a fundraising action plan. Follow up consultations focus on individual coaching to put those plans into action.

Pre-Campaign Planning Study – Critical to the success of any major fundraising initiative, the pre-campaign planning study will gage your organizational readiness to engage in the most intense and rewarding methods of fundraising. Whether or not you feel your organization is ready for a campaign, careful planning and study will also give you a roadmap to follow – kick starting the donor research and cultivation processes and highlighting the path to success.

Capital/Major Gift/Endowment Campaign – Following a pre-campaign planning study, an organization embarking on what can be one of the most arduous fundraising efforts in its history can benefit from professional, experienced fundraising counsel. Our campaigns from all perspectives – that of the consultant, executive staff and volunteer – and can provide exceptional coaching to guide the organization through one of the highest and potentially the most intensive levels of fundraising.

Annual/Membership Campaign Plan Development – On a regular basis organizations find they’re in a slump with their regular annual giving plan. Our team has extensive experience in all aspects of development strategy, planning and implementation, and quite a bit of creativity to boot.
