Feasibility Studies

A feasibility study lays the foundation for best practices and a deeper understanding of your top donors and their needs—before asking for a gift. Besides providing your organization with valuable insights, asking donors to participate in a feasibility study cultivates stronger connections that can lead to more generous giving later.

Campaign Design & Readiness

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, right? So before launching a new funding campaign, we conduct a thorough analysis and rate your readiness to proceed. This entails sharpening your messaging, reviewing past performances, assessing processes, and identifying new prospective donors, volunteers, and partnering opportunities.
