Mission Planning - Community Needs Assessment

Your organization’s mission guides your work. Arthur Alley’s Mission Planning process identifies un-met and under-met needs in your organization’s service area and suggests how best your organization can address those needs within the parameters of your mission. Our Mission Planning yields recommended strategies and serves as a roadmap for the future. It sets a strong foundation upon which to build a strategic plan and a philanthropic case for support.

Strategic Planning

Does your organization have strategic goals for the future but no solid plan to get there? Strategic planning is the answer. Arthur Alley will lead thoughtful assessment to align goals with organizational values and create a solid plan of action. Arthur Alley provides guidance resulting in a realistic, time-bound plan of action supported by SMART Goals that ensure implementation.

Capital Campaign Readiness - Feasibility Study

Assessing your organization’s campaign readiness prior to launching a capital fundraising effort is the most important planning step for campaign success. The Capital Campaign Readiness process helps identify prospective campaign leadership, the availability of the large contributions needed for success and reaction to the campaign case for support. The end results are: an achievable campaign goal, a campaign structure, an implementation timeline and strategies to secure the largest campaign commitments.

Development Audit

A development audit is not a financial audit - it is an objective review of your organization’s development/fundraising process from top to bottom. There is always room for improvement. A development audit identifies areas where improvement or change can yield better results. To this end, the development audit provides strategies and processes to accomplish your organization's goals.

Campaign Capital Mangement

Campaign counsel is an important support to your staff and volunteers because it provides advice, guidance, structure and encouragement throughout the campaign. Arthur Alley consultants guide your team in integrating campaign work with ongoing development or advancement efforts. Arthur Alley consultants provide the guidance and training necessary for campaign success.

Annual Fund Planning and Management

Your ongoing development and fundraising efforts - your annual fund - secure necessary operational support for programs and services. Your annual fund also serves as a way to engage new and current donors in increasingly significant ways and to involve volunteer leadership. Arthur Alley will assess your current annual fund operations and suggest strategies for success. Our annual fund services include strategy planning, implementation, writing, staff and volunteer training, and coaching.

Board Engagement

Your volunteer leaders can add significant credibility, heighten organizational awareness, and increase fundraising capacity when they are engaged in a meaningful way. Arthur Alley will provide the guidance and training to help volunteer leadership understand their functions and responsibilities and, most importantly, carry them out.
