As an independent consulting firm, Advancement Advisors believes strongly in developing a fundraising strategy and implementation plan that will work within the organization’s culture, capacity and capabilities. It is important to understand best practices, but it also is critical that the strategy we recommend as consultants be in sync with the organization and achievable with existing resources.
Fundraising is everybody’s job within a nonprofit organization, and the first step to success is creating a culture of philanthropy. In such a culture everyone sees the value of fundraising for the organization’s success towards its mission and everyone understands the important role they personally play in the fundraising process.
