Base Building for Values-Based Fundraising

Do you need more donors? Of course, you do.

 

But not just any donor will do.

 

It’s important to find donors who will be with you for the long haul. Donors who are committed to your mission and who share your organizational values.

 

Our Community Engagement Opportunities are a tried-and-true donor acquisition system that offers an open door and warm welcome to all who are interested – then helps you stay connected with those who choose to engage.

 

We’ll help you build your own Community Engagement Opportunity and integrate it into your fundraising practice. You choose the level of support.

 

Full support: We’ll work with you to develop your messaging, identify and coach speakers, script your CEO, and write the invitations. We’ll coach you through the follow-up and your engagement strategies for new supporters, including drafting the appeal that invites their first financial gift.  Cost: $25,000

 

DIY: We’ll provide a live overview of the model and initial guidance for your team, provide templates for the scripts, invitations, and appeals, and offer feedback for a run-through of the CEO you create.  Cost: $8,500

Values-Based Grants

Grants provide important funding for mission-driven organizations.

 

But getting grants is frustrating. Long applications. Not enough information. Impossible deadlines. And in too many cases, all that work leads to nothing.

 

And the whole system is unjust – great wealth is held by a few powerful, mostly white, people and doled out in little pieces to nonprofits willing to abide by the rules the grant maker imposes. 

 

So, what do you do? How can you feel good about being part of this system?

 

Start with YOUR values.

 

In the Values-Based Grants package, you get: 

1

3 hours of facilitated conversations and exercises to help you define how values guide your grant seeking

2

Key grant seeking tools

  • Grants strategy and practice screen 

  • Values-based case statement 

  • Values-based grant template 

3

Two months of text and email support as you begin using your new tools

Cost: $20,000

Values-Based Events

Mission-centered events raise more money.

 

We’ve seen it happen again and again. When you align your event with your mission and lead with your values, donors are inspired to give more generously – and to stick with your organization longer.

 

Are you ready to craft a mission-centered event? Or to re-imagine a longstanding fundraising event?

 

Let us be your partners. We’ll share what we’ve learned from creating more than 20 mission-centered events.

We'll provide:
