Crafting your program, equipping your team

What question do volunteers fear most?

Will you chair the fundraising committee?

Thing is, the role of fundraiser belongs to everyone — from board members to the individual who answers the phone. While such a universal role doesn’t mean every person should ask for major gifts, everyone involved with a mission-based business has a role to play in ensuring current donors and potential supporters feel connected, valued and important to the organization’s future. While one size doesn’t fit all, every successful mission-based business shares essential fundraising elements —

  • A formal fundraising infrastructure — with standard procedures and scheduled (t)asks
  • A culture of consistent and thoughtful data gathering and reporting
  • A well-coordinated and scheduled fundraising program — from conversations to mailings to events

Whether you want to refine your current fundraising program or launch a special campaign, we’ll help you examine what’s working well, craft the story that will inspire giving, develop a strategy that engages donors at every level, and equip each member of your team for their role. We offer a range of services to strengthen your efforts —

  • Identifying the appropriate tools for collecting and analyzing your data
  • Building your fundraising program — scheduled mailings, donor analysis, major giving and more
  • Examining the feasibility of capital campaigns and developing leader-based giving programs
  • Exploring grant opportunities from foundations and corporate donors
  • Planning and producing major events
  • Launching or expanding an endowment initiative and legacy giving opportunities
