Partnership Development

Working with both nonprofits and their potential funders to envision what is possible and viable, we help our clients create, activate, and measure the impact of programs and solutions that help people.

We offer guidance and hand-on support, including but not limited to:

  • We analyze and explore your current client for comparisons. We often hear that clients did not even know what other “programs” their partner offered.
  • With prospect research we develop backgrounders to connect a prospect with your organization and programs.
  • What are you selling?
  • Who is funding what and why?
  • Who do you know?

We take a 3–5-year review of your funding sources and what was funded.

  • What programs have resulted in the best ROI?
  • Cost vs revenue?
  • Understanding major industries, new philanthropic giving and forecasting “safe and risky bets.”

    Understanding the client and speaking their language is critical to getting to the 3- yeses. We develop a customized pitch based on trends, background, asset mapping and program goals.

    Crafting a masterful ideation session – whether it is 3 hours or 3 days – requires that you take time to understand both organizations and map out desired whiteboard outcomes. We are keenly experienced with crafting ideation to achieve the BEST results with mapped out processes and timelines for success.

    We identify unlikely partners who may not realize they are looking for your organization. A solid case for support, backed by research, demonstrates value and leads to sustained partnerships.
