Do more with Donorcentric Development

You are in the right place if your organization wants to:
• Step up its fundraising game.

Develop a strategic fundraising plan.
• Provide fundraising training for staff, board members and volunteers.
• Get comfortable with fundraising operations.

There are just over one million public charities in the United States. 92% of them have revenues of less than $1,000,000 per year. These organizations usually have small staffs with team members wearing multiple hats within the organization. Fundraising can be a real challenge for them. Sometimes there aren’t enough staff to handle the fundraising tasks that need to be done, sometimes there is not the expertise to execute the fundraising plan, sometimes there is not even a fundraising plan.

Donorcentric Development can help!
Whether it is a fundraising checkup to identify strengths and weaknesses, a tune up to improve certain aspects of a fundraising program, or a complete overhaul of an organization’s development efforts, Donorcentric Development can guide an organization’s efforts to successfully reach its fundraising goals so it can fulfill it’s mission.
