Inspire Your Donors to Give More 

Your nonprofit organization does essential work for the community, and your donors want to help. We help you bridge the gap between your mission and your donors, so they are encouraged to give more freely.

We are passionate about guiding our clients in how to ask for money effectively so they can continue (and extend!) their life-changing work.

The Science of Gift Giving

Many nonprofit organizations put their efforts toward the wrong donors. Our data-driven approach helps you identify the right donors — people who will be the most excited and able to give.  

The Art of Gift Giving

Once you have identified your true fans, that’s when the magic happens.  We show you how to ask these supporters for more money in a way that resonates with them. People want to help you. It makes them feel joyful to be of benefit to their community. We show you how to inspire them. 

Major Gifts

Research shows that about 88% of your capital will come from about 12% of your donors. We help you identify and reach these gift-givers more effectively. 

Major Gift Development 

We develop a plan to encourage these special donors to prioritize and direct more funding towards your organization.

Solicitation Training 

Simply put, we show you how to ask people for money. We help you present your organization’s story in a way that inspires your supporters to give. 

Prospect Screening

Everyone is passionate about something. We want to help you identify the audience that is passionate about you. We use the data we’ve gathered to help you pinpoint those individuals. 

Recruiting

No one knows your fundraising campaign like your fundraising manager. We help you cut through the rubbish to identify a candidate’s real skill level to find the best one for you.

Training

We help you put your plan into work boots by training your staff and teaching them how to apply this training to your nonprofit fundraising efforts.
