At Constellation Advancement your mission is our mission
The people at Constellation are former vice presidents from non-profit institutional advancement organizations in the northeastern US. The idea that brought us together was to provide a consultant business that connects non-profit organizations with greater fundraising potential. We are specialists in finding the means to help non-profits to do more in service of their mission.
In our jobs we continually heard from our board members about other nonprofits where they served. These board members were always looking for fundraising help. Sometimes there were concerns about whether a capital campaign goal was realistic. Other times there were concerns about how to grow the board with more institutional development potential. In some cases key staff was missing and they needed temporary help. Sometimes board members worried that they could see a lot of activity in the development office, but they weren’t sure that activity was producing the revenue that it could.
We have broad experience with many non-profits. Our passion is to connect non-profits with greater revenue potential. We approach our work with a client-centric approach that comes naturally from our backgrounds as former vice presidents. Here examples of the kinds of challenges were we have helped our clients:
- Problems growing the kind of relationship fundraising that drives major gifts and board growth
- Gift planning programs that won’t take off
- Difficulty getting traction because of staff turnover and boards that don’t see themselves as fundraisers
