Development and Campaign Feasibility Analyses
In challenging economic times, development campaigns are increasingly central to the financial well-being of all nonprofit organizations. Today’s donors are more like investors, demanding measurable indicators of the impact their gifts are making on institutional vision and mission. In this environment, nonprofits must ensure that their development efforts are targeted to their most important strategic priorities.
Testing and planning for special development initiatives like capital and endowment campaigns are particularly important to strategic and successful fundraising. As strategists we have extensive experience in analyzing and testing readiness for major campaigns as well as ongoing fund development efforts. Our services in this area include:
- Undertaking diagnostic reviews of development plans, capital campaigns and development offices.
- Conducting campaign feasibility analyses to test readiness for major development efforts and determine the market for such initiatives.
- Ensuring that development plans, activities and efforts are appropriately buttressed by clear strategic thinking and that development results help institutions fulfill their mission, vision and key strategic objectives.
- Helping institutions plan for and execute development initiatives in other countries (particularly European institutions in the United States and U.S. institutions in Europe).
