blue print for success: development program assessments
capital campaign counsel
The enormous task of raising a large sum of money comes down to a thoughtful and detailed plan. Blueprint Fundraising will provide knowledge and experience, an outside perspective and technical know-how to keep your campaign on track. We will train your enlisted staff, board members and community leaders and give them the tools they need to solicit support. Critical preparation and deliberate execution will move your dream to reality.
development program assessment
Are you satisfied with your development program? A fundraising assessment is a comprehensive internal evaluation of your organization’s development function. It determines readiness for an annual or capital campaign and provides guidance to greater fundraising growth and sustainability. The audit includes conversations with key board and staff, reviews past fundraising results, analyzes donor data, evaluates the use of technology and reviews donor communications. The result is a Blueprint for Success. It will advise on best use of human resources, offer strategies to diversify funding sources, include software considerations and recommend ways to integrate communications and marketing.
grant writing + funder study
The depth and breadth of grant funding can be overwhelming. This study will provide a target list of funders whose priorities align with your mission and programs. Each profile will include contact information, funding range, recommended strategy and ask amount, as well as a deadline calendar.
Blueprint Fundraising also provides grant writing services. This process includes an initial meeting with you and a conversation with the funding agency to ensure a customized proposal. This collaborative process guarantees your proposal is submitted on time.
board + staff training
These customized training sessions turn your respectable team into an industrious one. Blueprint Fundraising can coach your program staff to play a larger role in fundraising. We can also move your development staff to the next level of expertise, expanding on your past achievements. If your board lacks the skills and confidence to advocate and solicit on behalf of your organization, that can be rectified with instruction and practice too. We can advise your human capital to better understand their roles and work together to advance your mission.
