Fundraising can be a daunting task for many nonprofits, but our team of experienced professionals is available to help your organization secure the funding you need.
We have successfully raised funds for programming and operational expansions, brick-and-mortar renovations and new construction, and more. Our approach to fundraising utilizes a strong rational appeal, positioning your organization as an investable community asset providing real benefits, impacts, value, and return-on-investment (ROI). Whether you’re looking for full-time capital campaign counsel or development support to supplement your own efforts, we can help.
Why do some nonprofit fundraising campaigns consistently exceed their goals? We found the answer to this important question looking back at over 25 years of fundraising experience and hundreds of campaigns we’ve managed. The organizations that were successful all had what we term Asking Rights™, which incorporates three things: Credibility, Fundraising Skills, and Outcomes.
When nonprofits begin a fundraising campaign too soon, without having first earned Asking Rights, they may end up leaving money on the table by not knowing who to ask, how much to ask for, or how to make the ask. On the other hand, waiting too long to initiate a major fundraising effort can have you missing out on valuable opportunities as well. Our Resource Development services can help you assess your organization, learn to monetize your outcomes, and plan next steps so your nonprofit can reach funding sustainability and exceed your fundraising goals in the future. These services are ideal for organizations that:
In every community, nonprofit organizations compete for the same narrow pool of supporters.
Many organizations struggle to stand out and make their cause the most compelling a funder will hear.
Our Campaign Consultants approach fundraising differently—translating what you do into what funders will invest in.
It’s a powerful appeal informed by years of research and dedicated nonprofit consulting experience.
