Campaign Management and Direction

There has never been a greater need for your organization to implement a campaign than in this economic environment—the kind of campaign that will rise above the myriad of competing donor appeals. Our extensive experience designing and managing successful campaigns is the strongest evidence of our ability to gauge donor interest and translate that interest into transformational gifts. It also means that we understand that balls drop, plans go awry, and unexpected events happen. Through it all, we maintain an intense commitment to driving you—your staff, board and volunteers— to achieve meaningful and measurable results.

While we bring knowledge, innovation and objectivity to every project, we also integrate the expertise of our clients. We foster the spirit of teamwork through our collaborative approach, where all parties understand their roles and responsibilities with accountability and benchmarks built into the process. In short, we serve as strategists and advisors to advance best practices in fundraising and nonprofit management. We provide ongoing research, training, facilitation, and counsel that empowers your board, management, and development staff to capably and comfortably solicit funds through ongoing, well-coordinated efforts.

Our role includes:

  • Designing and directing campaign strategies
  • Creating campaign schedules and benchmarks
  • Establishing organizational systems, including gift tracking and acknowledgements
  • Identifying, evaluating and developing prospect solicitation strategies
  • Developing campaign leadership recruitment strategies
  • Producing prospect briefing materials, solicitation notes and proposals
  • Coaching volunteers on effective gift solicitation techniques
  • Identifying, valuing, and cataloging named gift opportunities
  • Designing donor recognition programs
  • Developing the chart of gifts (size and quantity) needed to achieve the goal
  • Training, managing, and motivating campaign volunteers
  • Creating custom campaign communications and materials
  • Conducting foundation research and grants calendar
  • Designing a system of campaign reports and records
  • Preparing a campaign final report
  • Designing campaign follow-up

Marketing and Communications

Whether you need collateral materials to support a campaign, to just stay in touch with donors, or to reach out to prospects, our in-house capabilities provide important advantages. Among those advantages is the understanding and experience that our marketing and communications professionals bring to campaign messaging, donor outreach strategies, and expert practices for ongoing development communications. Materials we produce, manage or advise on include:

  • Strategic plans to guide communications for campaigns and fund development programs
  • Print and video case statements
  • Campaign systems, including survey tools, acknowledgements, donor acknowledgment systems, IRS forms, and donor recognition materials
  • Outreach materials, including brochures, posters, videos, vimeo messaging, websites, direct mail, and publications
