Fundraising is both art and science.

For over 30 years, The Curtis Group has integrated disciplines including research, benchmarking, and data analytics with creative and customized strategies on approach, timing and messaging. This combination has proven itself so often that many of our clients have engaged us in successive—and successful—campaigns. Our nonprofit consulting services include:

Crisis Coaching

What we know from past experience is that now is not the time to wait for things to change. Now is the time to leverage our 31 years of experience through past recessions and times of crisis and uncertainty. Now is the time to assess and take action. We will coach you and your team on what you should be focused on right now. We will conduct wealth screening on your donor database and review key donor reports. With this information and our years of experience, we will help you build your COVID-19 case for support, action plan and calendar, addressing key questions along the way.

Campaign Planning & Management

Your campaign readiness and feasibility are only the beginning. Our extensive planning study will serve as a blueprint for your campaign, offering customized strategies to help you meet—and often exceed—your fundraising goal. We’ll continue this personalized approach in helping execute your campaign, through our fundraising campaign management and consulting services.

Fundraising Program Assessment & Capacity Building

By assessing your development program’s strengths, weaknesses, and effectiveness, we can pinpoint areas of challenge and opportunity. Whether you need a development assessment or capacity-building consultants, we’ll provide customized recommendations that will enhance the effectiveness and the results of your fundraising efforts.

Board & Staff Development

Through our staff and board training services, The Curtis Group can educate your leaders on topics that are crucial to reaching your fundraising goals. Topics will be customized for your organization and your board and may include “The Role of the Board in Fundraising” to “How to Make a Major Gift Ask.”
