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



Both are essential to long-term success. Most of the time they cannot be separated into nice, uncomplicated boxes. A merger of the two will ensure your ultimate success. 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 what your staff size or expertise.


If only they would give…I’ve heard that (ok, I’ve said it too) so many times. Philanthropy212° will help you create and implement programs to encourage and increase internal giving—by employees, leadership, physicians, etc. Whomever your internal stakeholders are, we can teach you the the art and the technique to making them your best donors.


Your donors want to be inspired to give.  Strong, donor-focused communications will take your messages beyond asking for contributions to inspiring philanthropic investment in the ideas and values that drive your donors.  Philanthropy212° can write donor communications that tell your story in a way that inspires donors to partner with you to make things happen.


It’s like doing the laundry—if you ignore it the absence of clean clothes will eventually create quite a problem. Donors want to know you know how to manage their philanthropic dollars and that you are a tightly run 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 donors confident in you and 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.
