Let’s work together to map out a fundraising strategy and a plan for implementation that allows your non-profit to raise the funding you need to support your programs.


Small to midsized development shops are often overwhelmed by the multiple needs and opportunities that come their way. Staffing these departments is hard – development staff need to be well skilled in a variety of tasks (events/grants/major gifts) and at the same time able to multitask.


Getting a strategy in place is critical for fundraising success. Drafting a plan is done in collaboration with the staff and board (a team defined by you). Together we will:


  • Assess your current development efforts – what is in place; what is working; and what is not
  • Design and draft a plan that is workable for your organization
  • Execute a plan of action to help you enhance and grow your fundraising efforts


We will create a manageable plan for the current staffing while looking to the future to identify areas of growth. We will identify the organization’s strengths and help figure out the next staffing hire to support the work of the current staff.


You will get a development plan that fits today’s resources and grows with your organization. Each plan is drafted so that you can take it and implement it on your own. Some clients want additional support and decide to move into a coaching relationship after the plan is written. Either way, the clarity of having a plan in place will help the organization grow and thrive.


A key component to every plan is how to engage the board so that their time is used wisely, their contacts leveraged appropriately, and the coordination on the staff side is manageable so that the organization can reach its goals while using the best skills of its staff and board.


Once the staff is up and running with the plan, we will get the board and stakeholders involved. Click here for more information on Training and Meeting Design.
