Assessment of current fundraising
I can undertake an objective evaluation of your fundraising efforts, and provide you with specific and implementable recommendations.
Small organizations thrive with a fundraising plan that effectively prioritizes efforts for best results with limited staff and resources. I’ll help you develop a plan that is comprehensive, easy to use, and strengthens your long-term capacity for major donor fundraising. You’ll have a template that you can adapt year after year.
The most cost effective way to raise money is with a major campaign. If you’ve never embarked on a major fundraising campaign, getting experienced and professional consulting help is essential. I’ve worked with organizations to dream, design, plan and successfully implement major campaigns with goals as small as $100,000 and as large as $200 million.
Establishing meaningful and lasting relationships with all your donors requires consistent and personal contact with on-going communication.
Internally, this requires coordinating communication efforts with fundraising efforts. I can help your staff team and volunteers comprehensively plan and integrate your marketing, communications, social media, and fundraising efforts together under the umbrella of “Advancement.” This coordination provides greater engagement with your supporters and the wider community.
Turning contacts into donors
I’ve developed a systematic approach to maximizing the use of your donor database, increasing the total number of good contacts, and planning for engagement with your best donors. I help you improve donor retention as well as identify supporters with the greatest financial capacity and motivation to fund your mission. By systematically focusing on using the information contained in your database, I can help you turn your organization’s data into loyal and generous donors.
