During the Do phase, we are your thought partners offering the advice, training, and resources you need to confidently implement your fundraising strategy and invest in your staff and volunteers to have the biggest impact.

Board Training

We design customized fundraising training, coaching, and tools so your board members feel empowered to embrace their important role in your fundraising success.

Volunteer Support

Whether it’s a Campaign Committee or a Development Committee, we can help you implement the right level of management to cultivate your volunteers for sustained reliable support and engagement.

Staff Coaching

Inherent in all of our work with you is serving as a thought partner, sharing best practices and our experiences to problem solve and create a strong fundraising culture within your organization.

How It Works

Our four-step process—assess, dream, plan, and do—offers a comprehensive analysis of your current fundraising trends, your organization’s vision, and your best opportunities to focus limited fundraiser time and attention. During Do, that means:

  • Scheduling weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly coaching sessions via video or in-person
  • Providing feedback on current pipelines, donor strategies, and development plans you have developed
  • Creating a consistent and inspiring donor communications strategy that keeps more donors and raises more money

“Barbara listened to what we said we needed and hoped to learn in order to assess and improve our direct mail program. Barbara not only delivered on our felt needs but also surfaced unfelt needs and gave us more than we knew we needed to know. On the tactical level, we came away with a lot of sound analysis and practical recommendations to work with now as we grow our direct mail program.”
