How can we help you?

Creating a clear fundraising and communications strategy will help your organization align revenue goals with a detailed plan so you can continue to provide exceptional service to communities and individuals in need.

Strategy creates a framework for success by outlining a measurable step-by-step plan via two major processes, formulation and implementation.

The foundation for working relationally with organizations depends on strategy and is at the heart of what Kaci does via:

- CEO and Leadership Training
- Major Donor Strategy
- Annual Fundraising Planning

Fundraising has traditionally consisted of face-to-face interactions like door-knocking or cold calling. However, new forms have emerged, like online fundraising, peer-to-peer or crowdfunding campaigns, or in-person, hybrid and virtual events. 

Fundraising consists of two main dimensions, donor acquisition or the acquiring of new donors and donor retention, the retaining of existing donors.

Kaci has considerable experience with all types of fundraising and bases fundraising strategy on our trademarked process of Integrated Relational Fundraising, where creating and maintaining relationships between donor and nonprofit are at the forefront.  Kaci can assist organizations with creating and executing:

- Annual and Capital Campaigns
- Grant Writing
- Annual Fundraising
- Virtual, Hybrid or Peer-to-Peer Events
