Economic Development Organization Fundraising

Here at Convergent Nonprofit Solutions, we understand the importance of economic development organizations and the role they play in communities across the nation. Local economies are the key to creating jobs, providing necessary services, and fueling economic mobility on a larger scale. This is why gaining reliable funding is important for the future of your organization and the impact it can continue to make. What happens when you can’t access the funds you need to support your community? This is where the experts at Convergent Nonprofit Solutions can help.


Case Studies

Launching A Successful First Capital Campaign

Can a rural community Economic Development Organization (EDO), which has never run a capital campaign in the past, launch a major fundraising initiative? How do you generate full buy-in from a business community that has never been presented with an “ask” of this nature? These are just a few of the concerns Convergent helped Phelps County Development Corporation (PCDC), rural EDO in Nebraska, address on the way to its first successful capital campaign.

Hiring Fundraising Counsel After Years of Successful, In-house Campaigns

Why should an Economic Development Organization (EDO) that has run successful capital campaigns for years seek professional fundraising counsel? What is the benefit of conducting a full feasibility study prior to launching a campaign?

Decreasing Dependency on Events for Funding

How does an Economic Development Organization (EDO) that has depended primarily on an annual fundraising event for years make the leap to launching a multi-year capital campaign?
