Conventional fundraising wisdom tells us that the success of a capital campaign is contingent upon having a successful development program already in place. While one cannot argue the benefits of an ongoing development program, for some RRBA clients their capital campaign has evolved into a new and successful comprehensive development program. For some, this un-conventional approach is both necessary and appropriate.
Regardless of the chosen approach (conventional or unconventional), a development program audit, or assessment, may be a very worthwhile investment. In fact, it may lessen your fundraising expenses and increase your charitable income.
Richard R. Blain & Associates has developed a Thirty-Five Point Assessment Tool that serves as the basis for conducting your tailored Advancement Program Audit. We will review and assess your mission statement, funding needs, case for support, staffing, systems, Board and volunteer structure and roles, fundraising methods, fundraising results, timelines, promotional materials . . . and much, much more.
Whether part of your campaign planning process, or simply to evaluate and enhance your ongoing advancement efforts, an RRBA Advancement Audit will provide significant and long-lasting benefits. Contact us today for more information or to discuss the benefits to your institution or organization.
