Your organization needs fundraising to fulfill its mission but creating and executing a fundraising plan requires strategic vision, organizational skills, attention to detail and time. Unfortunately, many nonprofits don't have a full-time development professional on staff to guide this complex endeavour, and other staff members just don't need another task added to their crowded to-do lists.
Don’t let this hinder your fundraising success.
Our fundraising planning services bridge the gap from where you are to where you need to be. A development strategy allows you to devote energy to your organization's work instead scrounging for ways to fill holes in your budget. You'll learn the right funding mix for your organization that's based on your current status and that of like-minded, similarly-sized and well-funded organizations.
How does it all work?
First, we'll analyze your current revenue sources to identify where you excel and where improvements are needed. Then, we'll use that information to establish benchmarks and identify your optimal funding mix along with attainable revenue and fundraising targets. Finally, we'll formulate a plan of action to get the ball rolling. That plan may include:
Different types of revenue sources, including foundation grants, cause-related marketing, corporate giving programs, and earned income activities
Developing new fundraising documents such as a Case for Support and Letter of Intent
Implementing a database to track prospects and funding opportunities
Exploring digital fundraising solutions and platforms
Regardless of your organization's size, fundraising is vital to your organization’s success. Let JDC prepare and implement a realistic development strategy that allows you to plan ahead and further your mission.
