Fund Raising and Fund Raising Management

We build your competitive advantage through the consultative engagement and fund raising process.

Fund raising is more than a technique, or set of techniques. It is a process.

But more importantly, it is a process executed from the donor's perspective. The exceptional fund raiser understands that people want you to help them give, not be be solicited. They are consultative, understanding their donors well enough to match the mission and goals of their organization with those of their donors. They are also strategic, landing donors whose commitments bring stability and growth to their organization. They keep a good balance between meeting the needs of their supporters and advancing the business of their own organization.

Since 1984, we have worked with some of the best non-profits in the world to build their cultures and teams and bring exceptional value to their supporters. Our Performance Enhancement Process can include any or all of these components.
