Fundraising and Donor Relations

Innovative Philanthropy helps you develop effective ways to attract, cultivate and retain individual and major donors.  We begin by establishing ongoing avenues to show new and old donors the impact that their support will have on the cause you serve.  We aim to achieve transparency and understanding in the giving process and help you build a long-term and active donor base.  We will:

  • Perform on-site review of donor database and records.
  • Analyze current individual giving by gift range.
  • Review current donor base with the organization to determine:
    • who has given significant gifts and how to increase their giving
    • which event givers can be transitioned to non-event donors
    • who has lapsed and how to re-engage them
    • who is under giving and how to increase their giving
  • Draft a comprehensive Board Member solicitation plan.
  • Integrate Board members into the development process.
  • Create target lists of individuals with the Executive Director and Board Members.
  • Develop a plan to easily identify and approach individuals.
  • Assist with research regarding individual prospects identified for solicitation.
  • Determine and implement customized follow-up to prospects.
  • Create and assess annual appeals.
  • Coordinate cultivation events, including Board Member Cultivation receptions and informational sessions.
  • Develop organized plan to thank donors for their support through letters and events.
