RELATIONAL FUNDRAISING AND DEVELOPMENT

Behind every gift of time, money, or wisdom is a web of relationships, and some of your most likely supporters are people you already know. We'll help you think more broadly about your needs, develop a strategy that fits who you are, and ask for support in a way that leaves both you and your donor feeling grateful. 

We've partnered with early-stage nonprofits looking to help find a first wave of support from their community, for-profit startups to re-think investor relations, established organizations seeking better donor retention, and development professionals on exploring new and authentic ways of asking for support - in all cases to ensure that fundraising efforts always maintain respect for the communities the money is being raised to serve.

We help both non profits and for profits with resource development, and work both with early-stage and more established organizations.

Some values that guide our work in this area are:

  1. Putting relationship before task, and building mutual interest with your donors so they feel connected to and invested in your work.
  2. Valuing work, wealth and wisdom as being essential in combination to the success of any venture, and working to cultivate relationships that contribute all three. 
  3. Making your donors feel heard by listening for values and creating a meaningful exchange of resources between you.
