We assess an organization's fundraising potential and development planning strategies through a series of confidential one-on-one interviews, conducted by experienced NETZEL GRIGSBY ASSOCIATES staff members,
with selected friends and supporters of the organization.
We manage capital and endowment campaigns by providing on-site staff on a full- or part-time basis (whichever is more cost effective), or we can simply provide campaign counsel to in-house staff, when appropriate.
We provide counsel and management to establish or expand major gift clubs and annual membership programs including personal solicitations.
We develop a plan tailored specifically to an organization's needs, and we manage the program to secure commitments through trusts, bequests and other planned gifts.
We facilitate an inclusive process that generates a shared vision among an organization's stakeholders and a plan that positions the organization to respond to a changing environment and enhance the achievement of its mission.
We will evaluate the organization's existing fundraising efforts in relation to its mission and long-range plans. Through a comprehensive on-site review we will suggest strategies to enhance development efforts.
A pre-campaign assessment may be appropriate for some organizations prior to a feasibility study in selected situations such as an interrupted capital campaign, lack of major gift fundraising program or an unclear strategic direction.
We staff the process of seeking corporate, private foundation and government grants through research, grant writing and assistance with program development.
We manage the entire planning process and develop a step-by-step plan to take an organization from its decision to undertake a capital or financial development project to the point of launching a successful fundraising program.
We provide counsel to management and volunteers in planning and building stronger boards and committees and strengthening the staff-volunteer participation.
We conduct training programs to prepare volunteers and staff for fundraising and other responsibilities required to carry out the mission of a successful nonprofit organization or institution.
We are fully prepared to assist our clients with extensive electronic donor profiling and prospect identification services through our affiliation with several recognized leading firms in the field of advanced prospect research services.
