Teach us how to fundraise and grow.

growth and development counsel

Monthly 1:1 Planning, Strategy, & Counsel / Six Months
For organizations of every size

The Situation Funding has plateaued and isn't growing at the desired rate. You're generating program income but not charitable gifts. You are leaving money on the table and are sure there has to be a better way forward. You desire the guidance, accountability, or thought partnership to implement real change in your organization through a strong development strategy. 

Our Approach — Each month, we’ll spend time together in a rhythm of in-person or virtual meetings working on development and organizational processes to position you to grow and streamline your funding. After month one, we'll provide a custom Strategic Fundraising Plan with recommendations tied to a Work Plan - then we'll methodically work through the plan to strengthen your organization. Let’s talk through your situation and figure out a way forward.

Monthly 1:1 Planning, Strategy, & Counsel / Six Months
For organizations of every size

The Situation  There's a lot counting on your next (or first) development hire - you need to find the right candidate who can grow your funding. You think you know what you need in a candidate but want to be certain and realistic. You desire support to ensure the new employee can hit the ground running on day one. You are committed to investing in a staff person who can transform your organization by strengthening your revenue.

Our Approach  We'll assess your organization's current development needs, identify all the holes your new hire needs to fill, and create a customized road map forward. We'll be your steady partner through the interview and hiring process until we find the right candidate. Then we'll use the road map to support and train your new staff member until you feel they are prepared.

3-month FUNDRAISING BOOTCAMP

Virtual 1:1 Coaching
For small organizations ($300K - 700K annual revenue)

The Situation Funding your mission shouldn’t be this hard. You might be discouraged, but know there has to be a better way forward. You desire the guidance to implement real change in your organization through growth strategy and strong development coaching. 

Our Approach  ‘Let’s Grow’ is a three month virtual intensive much like its older sibling (Growth and Development Counsel) but paced to fit your busy schedule and tighter budget. We’ll spend time every other week teaching you to streamline the processes that position you to grow. After years of working with nonprofits, we’ve identified many of the hurdles that keep you from growing. We'll work through key principles needed to strengthen your organization and then teach you how to solicit for gifts that will change your organization.
