Today, effective, innovative fundraising efforts are more critical than ever because the competition for donor dollars is highly competitive. Major non-profits are confronting the challenges of increased needs for services with shrinking budgets to support these needs because state and federal funding levels will never be what they once were. And a new trend has emerged where ordinary people take up the cause for a loved one, a friend in need or a commitment close to their heart.
Events, too, vary greatly in size, content, complexity and committee support. Proper planning, organization, budgeting and realistic expectations are vital. It is imperative that your event, and more importantly, your message be heard loud and clear to your intended audience.
Over the years we’ve worked with large and small non-profits and individuals seeking support for a cause near and dear. Some are old hands at planning events and rely on us to supplement their program with carefully selected and displayed memorabilia or travel packages. Directors of Development appreciate an ally with almost three decades of experience in their field. Those new to fundraising know that they can count on us for leadership to guide them through the process and stand with them every step of the way.
Mission Based Fundraising – Our guiding philosophy is that in fundraising it is crucial to implement a Mission Based Fundraising model where people get to know, love and support the mission and at a level within their comfort zone. That’s how you begin to build a base of sustaining revenue.
Charitably Inclined Resources – When it comes to selecting memorabilia and other items for events, we work only with those companies who are charity based. That means that their sole orientation is understanding and assisting charities and their requirements
Demanding Criteria in Choice of Suppliers – We have strict requirements when it comes to our providers. Besides being charitably inclined they offer excellent choice, service and response. They can customize and will enthusiastically search out that atypical request. They work on consignment and stand behind their products with rock solid warranties and authentication. Problems? No questions asked!
Expertise - Yes, it is an overused word, but after only a few minutes with us, you’ll know you’re dealing with true professionals backed by years of experience and satisfied clients.
PASSION!!!!!! - Most importantly, passion is the driving force behind what we do, why we do it and how we do it. You’ll see this in our first conversation. You’ll also find it contagious. Together as a team, we’ll take on the challenge of making your event the very best it can possibly be. In doing so we’ll aim to meet or exceed your fundraising goals.
