We can help you identify funders who are the best match for your project.
We can work with you and your team to take your capital campaign through four phases:
Are you ready for a campaign? We can help you answer that question; define the use of campaign funds and craft key messaging; and provide a campaign plan and timeline for success.
We can develop campaign materials, advise on structure and leadership, collaborate to develop your donor-recognition plan, and draft a communications plan.
We can identify and research prospective donors, assist with raising lead gifts during the quiet phase of the campaign, and help transition it to the public phase.
Your campaign was a success! We can help with post-campaign follow-up, including donor recognition and special event(s), and address the integration of new campaign donors into your annual fundraising efforts.
We can review, edit, proofread, and provide suggested revisions for grant proposals, case statements, and other documents written by you and your staff.
We also can review the operation of your current grants office and provide recommendations for improvement and growth.
We can prepare case statements—for both your organization as a whole and specific programs—and help you make compelling arguments for funder support.
Meeting the deadline isn’t the end of the grant request—it’s just the beginning! We can manage back-office functions—from keeping the grants calendar and writing follow-up emails to scheduling calls and coordinating site visits. We make sure your organization never falls off a funder’s radar screen.
We can also remove the burden of grant reporting by tracking deadlines and working with your program staff to prepare all report components.
