strategic communications

Development challenges, like gifts, come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you need to intelligently jumpstart a comprehensive program from scratch, or extend your current operations to new opportunities and audiences, we have the experience to help you reach your goals.

Fast-track Your Development Program
Our strategies build on your current strengths
To maximize donations, a nonprofit organization needs a coherent, readily executable communications strategy. Such a strategy can effectively leverage fundraising efforts in harmony with the organization’s overarching communications plan.

You’re already engaged with your donors and prospects in their roles as students, alumni, clients, employees, and fans. Extend the conversation and invite them to help you build a better future with a communications strategy that builds on their current relationships and speaks to their specific interests and concerns.

Sudden Priorities and Celebrations
Unforeseen needs, very promising gift conversations, new causes for celebration – the development landscape is constantly changing. We have the experience and talent to help you make the most of these important, fast-moving opportunities.

Leadership Gift Proposals and Stewardship
Every high-value donor needs to be approached and recognized individually, in the way that is right for them and their family. Our team is well experienced with creating personalized, one-of-a-kind pieces for major gift prospects that meet your communication timetable.

Special Event Support
Whether hosting a gala, reunion, golf outing or 5K, we can add capacity to your team by handling the event’s graphic design and communications. As you begin to line up entertainment and sponsors, ask how we can help create:

• A logo and graphic identity
• Save the dates
• Invitations
• Pre-event and thank you eBlasts
• Remarks and speeches
• Publicity and media outreach
• Social media and giving pages
• Photographer hiring and coordination
• Fun photo props

Custom Communications for Mid-level Donors
Because there’s no such thing as an average donor
Many development professionals spend a lot of energy on high-end donors and annual fund contributors, often struggling to build an effective pipeline of mid-range supporters. Our team has the experience to help you efficiently steward and speak to the particular interests of this audience and speed their conversion into higher level contributors.

Whether it’s major donors from years past or your organization’s next circle of friends and influencers, some group of prospects with the means and interest to support your cause is most likely on your mind--but beyond your ability to reach. We have the experience to help you efficiently connect with that next audience and start them on the path to philanthropic partnership today.
