Fundraising Consulting Firm Specializes in Planning And Execution Of Capital Campaigns For Non-Profits

By: Get News
Since 1996, CDS, Inc. has been recognized as the leading industry expert that provides full-service fundraising consulting. It specializes in strategic planning and tactical execution of capital campaigns for large and small non-profit organizations.

Custom Development Solutions and David G. Phillips are pleased to announce that the fundraising consulting firm has built its reputation on full-service consultation through the entire capital campaign process for non-profit organizations of every size. The firm launched in 1996 to provide a custom-tailored fundraising solution as a more intimate option than the "cookie-cutter" fundraising consultancies in the marketplace. The initial reason for being 27 years ago is still the same today: to offer non-profit organizations and their Boards a more customized and intimate process and relationship as they navigate from capital campaign feasibility studies to the execution of a successful capital campaign.

CDS builds successful campaigns for large and small organizations in urban, suburban, and rural settings. The team has raised over $2.5 billion for healthcare, the arts, independent and higher education, civic and social organizations, international humanitarian relief, market-led development, religious institutions, and community services. The process is customized for individual non-profits, but uses tried and true techniques and strategies. The professionals apply efficient and effective fundraising techniques to the client's situation.

A program is tailored to fit the client's organizational culture while ensuring it realizes its financial goals. CDS also provides that clients learn as much as possible during the process, so they can continue healthy development practices and established donor networks to continue their path forward long after the initial project is completed.

Over the past nearly three decades, CDS has become a national network of seasoned fundraising consultants with fundraising accomplishments, impressive leadership, and a core team of pros with expertise in project management, business plans, budget, leadership training, public relations, communications, marketing, sales, grant writing, social media marketing, and graphic design.

The company culture makes it possible to provide a steady, experienced, and caring presence. CDS places a full-time Campaign Director on-site with clients where appropriate. The Campaign Directors become part of the client's organization and community fabric. The Campaign Directors gain a much deeper appreciation of the client's needs, opportunities, and challenges that may arise on the journey toward reaching a fundraising goal.

CDS provides an on-site Campaign Director who is instrumental in planning, organizing, and monitoring every aspect of the capital campaign process while training the client, staff, and volunteers in using proven and successful fundraising practices. This comprehensive service gives the client organization a full-time campaign director dedicated to the campaign and working out of the client's organization offices. CDS works with the client's organization to plan, organize and monitor every phase of the capital campaign process. The CDS campaign director ensures that all campaign details, including technical and creative, proceed smoothly and profitably.

The CDS director drafts the capital campaign plan, creates detailed timetables, recruits, and trains volunteers, conducts intensive prospect research and screening, writes capital campaign literature, works with graphic designers and printers to produce capital campaign marketing materials, collaborates with creative firms to develop capital campaign video, tracks the capital campaign's progress and provides counsel based on that assessment, and ensures that the campaign remains a top priority of the organization's managers and governing Board.

Some of the steps included in the process include determining the organization's readiness and its reception within the community. The fundraising identifies potential leaders and donors, realistic goals, and a timeline for a successful campaign.

About the Company:
