Donor Engagement & Retention

The backbone of any successful fundraising effort is the strength of your relationships with individual donors. That’s where we excel. Our consulting services give you a step-by-step guide to engage potential donors and maintain valuable ties with major donors. Starting with a deep dive into your existing donor database, we help segment your audience—grouping donors by engagement level, giving history, and other relevant factors.

Once we’ve honed in on your various donor groups, we develop customized communication strategies. Think targeted email campaigns that deliver the right message at the right time or personalized fundraising appeals that truly speak to each donor’s interests and passions.

We also incorporate the latest fundraising software to track engagement metrics, making it easier to adapt and refine your strategies over time. The aim? To maximize your fundraising dollars by turning potential donors into committed long-term supporters.

Fundraising Campaigns & Events

Got a major annual campaign coming up? Or perhaps you’re dipping your toes into the world of online fundraising and virtual events? Whatever the case, we’re here to take your fundraising efforts to the next level. We start by helping you select the most appropriate platform for your needs—be it for a virtual auction, a giving day, or any other type of fundraising initiative.

Next, we guide you through crafting compelling fundraising appeals that not only grab attention but also inspire action. Our strategies also include robust plans for corporate partnerships, because we know that charitable dollars don’t only come from individuals. Whether it’s aligning with businesses for matched gifts or sponsored events, we’ve got the expertise to broaden your fundraising avenues.

First, we conduct a comprehensive audit of your current operations, identifying areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. Then, we deliver actionable recommendations designed to bolster your internal capabilities—from staffing and volunteer management to adopting the right fundraising software.

With these systems in place, your organization will be better equipped to maximize fundraising efforts, whether it’s tapping into new pools of individual donors or efficiently allocating fundraising dollars. So, as you aim for sustainable growth and increased impact, know that we’ve got your back every step of the way.
