I work with clients on assessment of stewardship and donor relations operations; development of policies, practices, and services that ensure organizational transparency and accountability; and building successful stewardship and donor relations programs that contribute to increased gift revenue. The best bet is to seek out a consultant with no products to sell, one well versed in balancing the needs of annual, cumulative, planned and special project giving programs with the notions of moves management that foster continued giving.
Continued philanthropic support depends on maintaining strong relationships with donors. The donor-centered approach examines the complex give-and-take between individuals and institutions and helps you build stronger relationships with your philanthropic investors. I can work with your board and staff to assess your current donor relations and stewardship activities and help you create stronger, donor-centered programs. In addition, Donors are now, more than ever before, focusing on accountability and your institution’s ability to demonstrate the meaningful ways in which their gifts are being used. Consultants can work with you to sharpen your skills to measure the impact of your stewardship efforts.
