Annual campaigns are the mainstay of most revenue development programs in the nonprofit world. Our consultants have worked on hundreds of such campaigns and provide expertise on all aspects of the annual campaign strategy. We work with your team to develop a plan that maximizes existing resources utilizes best practices in the field.

We collaborate with your staff and volunteers to design a campaign that aligns with your current fundraising objectives and programs. Our campaign assessment phase includes a thorough examination of current methodologies, marketing materials, staffing models, board structures, committee charges and database management programs.  We then help you to identify target markets, conduct donor and prospect research, develop campaign marketing materials, produce timelines, plan events, examine budgets and develop cultivation and stewardship strategies.

We will provide training and coaching to staff and volunteer leadership in order to ensure they are comfortable with the fundraising on behalf of the organization. Your dedicated Giving Tree Associates  team offers ongoing advice and direction to staff and leadership throughout the campaign process. Giving Tree helps your nonprofit create goal-driven development strategies and manage the critical components of a fundraising campaign.
