Development planning involves creating the 12-month development plan, covering your annual campaign and any mini campaigns aimed at individuals, as well as your annual stewardship or retention plan, aimed at staying “top of mind” with your donors so they continue contributing over the long term.
Our consulting team helps organizations build their annual development plans, sorting through all of their ideas to create a solid blueprint with a clear return on investment. By uncovering the top priorities behind your fundraising vision and reviewing your existing development plan, we make recommendations and plot a course to the diverse and sustainable revenue streams that will help you meet your programmatic and operational needs.
Our work will give you the skills to:
- Leverage your organization’s unique value proposition
- Understand what your stakeholders and donors really want
- Design solid, innovative plans for diversifying your income streams
- Recover missed opportunities to demonstrate impact and impress donors
- Zoom in on smart, customizable methods that work for your specific needs and push you toward your goals
