Development Office Assessments to Improve Revenue Outcomes
A specialty at Constellation is evaluating development office ability in terms professional function, policies and procedures, institutional best practices, and revenue performance relative to expense. Typically, we will begin a retainer with one of our clients using a development assessment to evaluate the situation and customize the way we provide consultative advice and service. This approach gifts us insight about how to focus our efforts. It also provides our clients with a new, professional point of view about their development functioning, their development assets and their areas of weakness.
Non-profit boards and executive directors are often troubled by a sense that their development office generates a lot of activity, but not enough tangible outcomes. We supply you with professionals who give you tools for improvement. Our team members have broad experience with the manner in which development offices function. We have an overarching perspective. We are in a position to evaluate your situation professionally and report candidly. We understand the first principles of how to measure, achieve, and evaluate fundraising output.
If you see fundraising activity that doesn’t line up with rewarding revenue results, let us offer a new perspective and independent ideas about causes, action, and solutions.
