The philanthropic landscape has changed dramatically in the last decade. Prospective donors have more access than ever before to information that will help guide their philanthropic decisions, and the competition among non-profit organizations to garner their support is intense.
In recognition of this competitive environment, we have built our consulting practice on three guiding tenets which position non-profit organizations to successfully fundraise for their vital missions:
1) All good fundraising is relationship based, 2) Fundraising programs should be carefully built to create sustainable, consistent results, and 3) Fundraising readiness must be evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively in order to develop a shared understanding of and commitment to achieving goals.
Richner & Richner uses a proprietary process to rigorously evaluate the six key factors that we know impact fundraising success: mission, case for support, leadership, prospective donors, stewardship and recognition, and ability to execute. Based on the results, our focus is to help our clients build a true culture of philanthropy within their organizations - one where fundraising is valued. We create tailored fundraising strategies, in partnership with our clients, to achieve ongoing, sustainable fund development success.
Richner & Richner has developed unique approaches to program readiness assessments, feasibility studies, campaigns, and implementation counsel for a broad array of non-profit organizations around the country.
