Strategic Development/Fundraising Plan

Having a strong plan in place for fundraising produces greater results and opportunities to identify areas of improvement. I will work with you to review your current fundraising efforts, outline a strategic mix of fundraising activities, and develop a comprehensive list of marketing materials, timeline and guide for task completion.

Direct Mail Appeal Plan

A strong appeal is focused and reaches individual donors on multiple levels. An appeal plan will help you tell your story, target your prospects, and follow-up to ensure maximum success rates. Referrals for graphic design services available upon request.

Online Appeal Plan

Similar in planning to direct mail appeals, online appeals are often targeted younger donors. It is important to have appeals that include a cohesive branded strategy for several points of outreach. Online appeal plans also include consultations for data analysis, list segmentation, and timing of emails.

Donor Stewardship Plan

When donors are shown the impact of their gift, their relationship with your organization grows and they are more likely to renew their support. Create a plan and materials to acknowledge donors promptly, update them regularly, and understand their motives for giving.

Crowdfunding Appeal

Harness the power of social media to build awareness and support for your organization. Includes identifying the best platform for your campaign, creating campaign text and graphics, and developing a written plan for outreach and implementation, including fundraising goal, tasks, list of initial supporters, and timeline.

Board Fundraising Training

Are you located in the Hudson Valley or Tri-state area and searching for ideas to get your Board members excited and engaged in fundraising? I can provide a variety of presentations and strategic planning to get your Board on board with raising awareness and support.

Coaching Services — New Development Staff

Small nonprofits often begin with development staff who have come from other fields of experience and lack training on managing a development office. Plans available for one-time coaching sessions on specific development topics or ongoing face-to-face or Skype meetings and email support.

Individual Prospect Research

If you are embarking on a capital campaign or looking to cultivate major donors for your organization, it is helpful to have a deeper understanding of your best prospects, including their capacity and inclination to give. This service will review your current donor database, identify top prospects, and provide detailed profiles of their assets, charitable giving practices, and interests.
