Professional Fundraising for Nonprofit Organizations
Milwaukee Fundraising Company Provides Successful Strategies for Fund Development
A recent study shows that the fundraising industry is troubled with disappointment and dissatisfaction. Fundraisers and nonprofit executives both seem to reach the same conclusion that the current model is not working.
Lack of strategy and lack of leadership are major issues in nonprofit organizations where fundraising is concerned.
The Giersch Group’s general fundraising counsel program provides a successful alternative to nonprofit organizations struggling with fundraising. Our nonprofit services include all the key areas of a nonprofit necessary to support the program.
Outline of General Fundraising Counsel Program
Strategy: Focus on best practices and technical expertise.
Accountability: Set realistic goals and measure progress monthly.
Performance: Build well-trained fundraising talent for the long haul.
Giersch Group’s GFC is based on the five pillars of fundraising:
- Donor database
- Board of directors
- Major Donors
The Foundation of Effective Fundraising Consulting
The five pillars of fundraising consist of the two most important tools for any undertaking – data and leadership—and the three main sources of donations:
- Those who give over a certain threshold
- Funding institutions such as private foundations, corporate foundations, and government
- Those who give small gifts
General Fundraising Counsel will help you create a comprehensive fundraising strategy based on the five pillars of fundraising. Together we will determine which pillars will merit the most attention, and create 3 to 5-year goals and activity plans for each.
