Development Studies

Legacy Fundraising Consultants Inc. specializes in Capital Campaigns and increasing fundraising capacity through annual campaigns and Planned Giving. We work with you to establish fundraising systems and procedures that will raise more support and money now and for the future. By working with you we evaluate, plan, organize and implement the most effective campaign for your organization.

By working closely with you, we can assess the unique character of your organization, its strengths and weaknesses relative to your goals and recommend the best course of action for you. To better understand your needs and how to meet them, we begin by designing a Development Study with your organization and potential donor community in mind.

In positioning your organization for successful fund raising, Legacy’s professionals will use this information to recommend the most appropriate fund raising strategy for launching your campaign. Only by designing a capital campaign that reflects the values of your organization can you reach your financial goal while building your organization.

We firmly reject the common practice of applying a “cookie-cutter” approach to successful fund raising. Legacy understands that each organization has different advantages and challenges. Our experience, insight and flexibility enable us to tailor programs to the financial and administrative circumstances of your community. We work with you to understand these influences and enhance your existing strengths. We will train staff and volunteers to improve your total communications strategy, ensuring that your fundraising reflects the unique identity of your organization. Our partnership with you results in a more meaningful campaign, encouraging support from within your organization and the surrounding community. Our campaigns are not ends in and of themselves, but rather are designed to become a part of your organization’s ongoing stewardship and development plans.

Legacy provides Capital Campaign assistance from inception to completion. We will custom design a campaign to meet your particular needs, and that will appeal to your donors and support community. Our team of professionals is experienced and sensitive to the needs of the organizations with whom we work. Our campaigns are results oriented!
