Fund Development is a specialty of a number of Osborne Principals and Senior Advisors. Our range of services in this area is wide and will be customized for an organization’s specific needs. While each group presents its own challenges, there are common practices that can underpin and strengthen the specialized delivery you may require.
All fund development efforts starts with a Needs Assessment. You cannot effectively raise money if the needs are not clearly identified and supportable. Every organization needs a strong value proposition showing why support of their initiatives is a good investment in the community. Donors, sponsors and social venture customers will accept nothing less.
Osborne offers Fund Development Audits by Principals with CFRE designations. This is a cost effective way to test your current approach to fund development. It will indicate the potential for success using your status quo. It will tighten your focus in fund development so you will achieve the greatest success.
Osborne offers services for the development of a strong and formal Case for Support. This consolidates your needs assessment and value propositions into a clear and marketable document. This is a critical requirement for capital campaigns and sponsorships, and strengthens efforts within annual or general campaigns. A strong Case for Support will also improve results when applying for government support programs.
Osborne’s experts can be engaged to support your existing fund development team and help it be more successful. We can deliver specialty project campaigns or take on entire campaigns from planning through execution. Osborne is skilled at working with existing teams or can engage new teams for this work. Your needs and expectations will guide those decisions.
We look forward to helping you find financial success in your fund development efforts.
