It’s Time To Refresh The Fundraising Strategy For Your Nonprofit



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 — only combining 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, leadership, and other members of the staff. Whoever your internal stakeholders are, we can teach you the approach 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 simply asking for contributions. Through our fundraising strategies for nonprofits, we will inspire 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 further your cause.


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 that you know how to manage their philanthropic dollars. If you want to run a tight ship, policies and procedures must be in place for absolutely every part of the process — from investments to donor recognition. Philanthropy212° can provide you with customized policies and procedures that will make your life easier and increase donor confidence in 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 ensure that you are stewarding resources appropriately. Philanthropy212° is happy to review your systems and refine them or help you create a fundraising strategy for your nonprofit from scratch.
