Let me share a story with you…
A few years back when I first started consulting, I provided organisations like yourself with strategic fund development audits and assessments and then crafted finely honed plans.
What I thought were roadmaps to launching an organisation’s successful fundraising program, were not.
When I asked my then clients, “What happened to those well-made plans?” The answer that I heard over and over was, “While the plans were great, we just didn’t have anyone to implement them.”
So, year after year the plans sat on a shelf.
Does this at all sound familiar?
You can have the best-made plan or the greatest intentions, but without all that you need in place, you are not going to reach your goal.
So, it was in those moments that I decided to really listen to my clients and start to meet their needs and not mine. A new way of doing business was born. Tentatively, one group “bought” my new model, then another, and before you know it, I had groups from all over the Northeast knocking on my door.
In those moments, our Interim Fundraising staffing division was born.
It was only because I had been there myself. Too much to do, competing expectations, putting out fires – you know all the things that happen daily in a nonprofit. I imagined what it would be like for some of these groups to achieve if they had a professional fundraising executive working in their office leveraging their assets. I could only imagine that they would be successful and they were. Very.
Imagining what it would be like to say, “Our Board gives 100%,” or “We exceeded our goal” or “We received our first $1,000,000 grant.” Boards would be elated, executive directors relieved, and staff would have the funding to do their jobs to the best of their abilities. Can you imagine that?
And, while you may feel right now as if this is not possible. It is. I know it is because we have now gone on to serve in-residence with dozens of clients just like you.
I knew it was possible and it is. Bravely meeting your needs. What you thought was not possible, is. You can have a plan and meet it too. And, you can do it quickly. You can have the funding you need to meet your mission and get out of scarcity mode. You can become the best and be the best. You can only do that with a company that has proven it is possible.
Now because we have earned your respect and you have built our reputation, we’re growing.
We can no longer meet the demand for interim services with just myself. So, I set out to find some of the best and most highly accomplished fundraisers and support staff who could do just that. As of February 1, we have expanded our team to provide even more experienced fundraising interim staff to work alongside of you to get you to your goals quickly and efficiently.
Two Strategic Fundraising Consultants, in addition, to myself, along with a full-time Fundraising Project Manager and part-time graphic designer are here to meet ALL your needs.
We heard you. We listened. And, we responded to you.
I have set in YOUR seat for most of my career.
Have you always wanted professional fundraising staff but couldn’t afford them?
Now you can, and with us, you get an entire TEAM on your side.
My phone is always on.
