Fundraising Consulting and Training

What is Fundraising?

Fundraising is more than securing contributions from donors. It is an integral part of an organization's daily operation as well as being central to the short and long-range planning processes of any nonprofit organization. The patterns of the past, the priorities of the present, and the potential of the future are taken into consideration in the development of an integrated development plan.

Fundraising should be diverse and road, including funding from individual supporters, corporate contributors, foundations, fees or sales, planned giving, and special events.

Why Should Your Organization Actively Fundraise?

"My organization does not have financial difficulty. We receive generous donations from our current long-term supporters."

"I hate fundraising…and have so many day-to-day matters to attend to at my organization. Our board members hate asking for money, too!"

An integrated development program is crucial for every organization. An organization can not rely on one primary donor forever - it is too risky. Also, a broad pool of donors is an inducement to potential donors - thus, increasing revenues and money for your organization's work.

What services are available?

My services are designed to meet an organization's specific needs - on a one-time/project basis, on an as-needed basis or on a monthly retainer. Normally, an organization contracts with me for projects such as: conducting a feasibility study, writing a case statement, locating a pool of potential funders for a specific project, providing board training in solicitation, or handling all day-to-day duties required to maintain present funding.

I do all the work myself; as a result, my services are moderately priced to suit the requirements of organizations that are starting out in fundraising or do not have the need for a full-time development professional.

Contact me to discuss your specific needs. 1999-2003
