Feasibility Studies

Feasibility studies help organizations understand the likelihood of success for a proposed campaign.

Analysis is provided to ascertain the strength of key success factors such as: campaign readiness, the case for support, fundraising climate and timing, access to campaign leadership and major gifts, establishing the goal, and ability to execute the overall plan.


Major Gifts Program Start Up

Study after study indicates that organizations need to develop their major gifts program.

Special counsel will be provided to help you build program leadership, major gift levels, prospect qualification methods, relationship management processes, solicitation strategies and stewardship practices.

Special counsel will be provided to help value, project, manage and steward these donors with specific emphasis on increasing the dollar value long term.

Conducting a successful capital campaign can ignite and grow organizations unlike any other initiative.

Special counsel will be provided to guide the organization through the pre-campaign feasibility study, the campaign plan, the recruitment and deployment of the campaign committee, and all phases of implementation.


Capacity Campaigns

Capacity campaigns generate working capital to help organizations build infrastructure and add technology, systems, human resources, facilities and other resources to strengthen the organization.

Special counsel will be provided to develop the case, conduct the pre-campaign feasibility study, and implement all phases of the campaign.


I first saw Deb at the AFP International Conference in Chicago. I found her experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and approachable. We’ve brought Deb in twice now. She is engaging and has a wonderful way of breaking down information so you can leave her session and implement what you have learned.
