Need Help Reviewing Or Planning A New Program? Here’s What I Can Do For You



Both types of fundraising plans are essential to the long-term success of your non-profit. Most of the time, these plans cannot be separated into simple and discrete boxes. A merger of the two will ensure the ultimate success. As a leading fundraising consulting firm, Philanthropy212° can design programs from start to finish or help you refine existing programs by putting systems, procedures, and big ideas together to create the level of giving you deserve. We can also help you develop a robust planned gift program that funds your future, no matter the size of your staff or your level of expertise.


Philanthropy212° will help you create and implement programs to encourage and increase internal giving from your employees, as well as leadership, physicians, and other members of the staff. Whoever your internal stakeholders are, we can teach you the art and techniques required to make them some of your best donors.


Donors want to be inspired to give, which is why strong, donor-focused communications will take your messages beyond asking for contributions to inspiring philanthropic investment in the ideas and values that drive your organization. Philanthropy212° can write donor communications that tell your story in a way that inspires donors to partner with you to help more people.


Policies and procedures are like doing the laundry — if you ignore it, the absence of clean clothes will eventually create a problem. Donors want to know you know how to manage their philanthropic dollars and that you run a tight ship. Policies and procedures must be in place for absolutely everything — from investments to donor recognition. Philanthropy212° can provide you with customized policies and procedures that will make your life easier and increase donor confidence your organization.


Gift acknowledgement, gift acceptance, and financial processes can be overwhelming, but having these systems in place will save you time and resources and will ensure that you are stewarding resources appropriately. Philanthropy212° is happy to review your systems and refine them or help you create them from scratch.
