We strive to offer the most comprehensive areas of service while providing the expertise to help propel your organization to the next level.
Services We Provide:
The annual fund is the building for all fundraising. It serves to establish a base of donors that can serve as an effective device to inform and beyond a constituency to the organization. An annual fund focuses on individual donors that traditionally support the general operations of an organization.
Major Gift Campaign
A Major Gift Campaign is a vital part of a comprehensive fundraising program. These are larger gifts that often serve as the basis for an annual campaign, may be a part of a special campaign or are the largest income portion of a capital campaign. A Major Gift program is the process an organization pursues to cultivate individual donors into larger donors.
A Corporate Campaign is a targeted program towards corporations. This may include sponsorship opportunities, targeted solicitations and foundation support. A corporate campaign is an effective way by both enlarging existing annual gifts and of drawing in new corporate donors.
A capital campaign is most commonly conducted for new facilities, renovations, equipment and endowment building. A capital campaign has a set goal, beginning and end, a plan, a case statement, and pre-determined expenses.
An organization uses a fundraising plan as the foundation to begin and strengthen its fundraising efforts. It is the “roadmap” that defines the future development of a nonprofit. For example, a fundraising plan should include a case for support, a goal, sources of gifts, a gift range chart and solicitation strategies, just to name a few.
We conduct targeted research and prepare proposals for specific programs and ongoing operational budgets identified by the nonprofit organization. We work with your organization in submitting the proposal in a timely manner.
Organizational Business Leadership Coaching
Strong leadership is essential to every organization and business. We consult with organizations and industry about leadership values, characteristics, as well as leadership best practices. Our team analyzes and identifies areas that need work for the team to operate more effectively.
Successful organizations create projects that produce the desired result in established time frames with assigned resources. No matter what the characteristics of your project you define it by the same three ingredients: outcomes, start and end dates and resources. Regardless of the size of the project, we thoroughly plan and manage projects through completion.
501(c)(3) Internal Revenue Designation
Non-profit status is a federal law concept. Non-profit status may make an organization eligible for certain benefits, such as federal and state sales, property, and income tax exemptions.
Creating the right board to govern an agency can be a challenging task. We assess board effectiveness/capacity, create recruitment strategies, policies and plans that help an agency identify individuals that have a vested interest in the success of the organization and work to execute its mission.
Becoming a highly effective organization requires more than the right structure. High-performing nonprofits exhibit strengths across five areas—leadership, decision making and structure, people, work processes and systems, and culture. We help our clients identify their organizational strengths and weaknesses, and develop action plans to increase the ability of their organizations to maximize impact.
A strategic plan is a management tool designed to guide the strategic initiatives
of the organization. Strategic planning involves setting goals for an organization, reviewing its current situation to establish future vision, goals, and direction and finding ways to meet these goals. We assess the effectiveness of the organization’s business activities in terms of capabilities and gaps while creating a customized plan that will guide its short and long-term success.s.
