We believe that successful fund raising happens when we invest time and resources in fostering relationships and strategic partnerships. Let us be your partner in shaping the future and impacting our communities.
Campaign Strategy and Organization
Let us help you develop a successful campaign strategy. We will work with you to structure and coordinate an effective campaign strategy by defining clear roles and responsibilities, building partnerships, developing budgets and resources, and establishing systems for communication and decision making. These steps are crucial to ensure the smooth operation of a campaign, maximize resources, and achieve success. This work involves researching and understanding your target audience, setting goals and objectives, identifying key messages, and determining the tactics you'll use to reach and engage your audience.
We will assist you in defining your campaign goals, identifying potential donors, developing a compelling case for support, building a campaign leadership team, establishing a solicitation plan, launching your campaign, and evaluating your progress.
Feasibility Studies and Reports
The purpose of a feasibility study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of your project's potential benefits and drawbacks to determine the viability and practicality of a proposed project. The results of a feasibility study can be used to make informed decisions about whether to proceed with a project or modify it to better suit the needs and goals of your organization.
We will help you define the project scope with clear objectives and goals, gather and analyze data and information, including stakeholder feedback and potential financial and leadership support, evaluate steps forward, and develop recommendations on whether the proposed project is feasible or not.
Board Development and Training
Let us help you prepare your board of directors to more effectively fulfill their role in governing your organization. We provide education and resources to help board members better understand their responsibilities, make informed decisions, and contribute to the organization's success.
We will assess the strengths and weaknesses of your board of directors through surveys and interviews. Once we've identified the areas where board members need additional support, we will help you develop a training plan to address those needs through facilitated sessions and coaching to help them develop specific skills or navigate challenging situations.
Team Building and Facilitation
Your team is your organization's greatest asset. Let us help you build a strong, cohesive team and facilitate effective discussions and decision-making to maximize the success of your organization's efforts.
We will help you create a safe and inclusive environment, encouraging open communication and active listening. We will encourage team members to focus on their strengths rather than their weaknesses to build confidence and create a supportive team environment. Through team building and facilitation activities and sessions, we will take time to evaluate what is working well and what can be improved to make your team even stronger.
Grant Research and Acquisition
Let us help you secure funding by researching potential funding sources, identifying grants that align with your organization's goals, and submitting well-crafted grant proposals. We will help you successfully seek grant funding with a thorough understanding of the grant application process, a compelling grant proposal that outlines the project or program's goals and expected outcomes, and the ability to effectively manage and adhere to reporting requirements and guidelines.
Fund Development Implementation
Let us help you plan and execute strategies to raise funds for your organization or a specific project. This can include identifying potential sources of funding, developing fundraising plans, and executing those plans to generate the necessary funds.
We will help you assess and identify the funding needs of the project, as well as the potential sources that may be available. Based on the needs assessment, we will help you develop a fundraising plan that outlines specific strategies to raise funds, with key steps of implementation. After funds have been raised, we will help you evaluate the success of your fundraising efforts and make adjustments as needed for future initiatives.
Fund development can be a complex and ongoing process. We will help you build a dedicated team with knowledge and experience in fundraising to secure the resources to support your organization's missions, by building relationships with donors and supporters who can help sustain your organization over the long term.
