Fundraising Can Still Succeed

We can help you navigate fundraising during difficult times.

Fundraising during an economic downturn can be challenging.  Your organization is already being called on to provide support, information, and a hopeful sense of calm in a very chaotic, uncertain environment. Your Board and staff may not have the resources or time to manage a feasibility study or capital campaign, but funding may be a pressing issue for your economic development organization or chamber. A successful campaign requires:

  • Strong Leadership
  • Community Visioning and Strategic Planning
  • Time and Resources

Convergent ran many successful fundraising campaigns during the Great Recession. Communicating the urgency of need and finding the investors to fund economic development and jumpstart the local economy was our priority then. And it is today as well.
