Philanthropy: the key to greater mission impact

And with good reason: with the nation anticipating a huge intergenerational transfer of wealth, associations are discovering that philanthropy can be a valuable key to increasing member engagement, supplementing traditional revenue sources, and advancing worthy missions.
Consultants in Association Philanthropy helps your organization align strategic and philanthropic goals, evaluate fundraising capacity, and reach donors and prospects with compelling new opportunities to give.
Articulate vision and strategy
Clear organizational direction is the first prerequisite of philanthropic investment.
Evaluate fundraising capacity
Your organization has big ideas; does it have the donor base, culture and infrastructure to bring them to life?
Craft compelling messaging
Philanthropic communication is a lot more than mere ‘packaging.’ It’s a way of connecting donors to the organization in ways they find personally meaningful.
Plan for success
A carefully crafted development plan is essential to keep both staff and volunteers focused on the activities that result in revenue.
Execute with excellence
A development plan is a useful map, but a successful journey often requires a guide who can help navigate the ever-changing donor landscape.
The entire process of visioning, planning strategy and obtaining funding hinges on the presence of dynamic and capable leaders.
