Is it Time For A Tune Up?

I don't know about you, but my car always seems to run better after a tune-up. For most development plans though, it seems like this is an area that gets overlooked. A Development Audit can bring your program back to top performance.

Fundamentally, a Development Audit is an internal assessment of your fundraising program and your readiness to embark on new development opportunities.

The Audit looks at involvement of the board, staff and volunteers in the fundraising process and offers recommendations on how to best use the resources available to the ministry. It further evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of your current development systems, including fundraising software.

The Audit also offers suggestions to help improve donor communications and stewardship.

Many ministries consider a Development Audit when they are:
  • Preparing to embark on a major gifts, capital or endowment campaign.
  • Not satisfied with the results of their annual giving program.
  • Seeking to increase Board participation in fundraising efforts.
  • Attempting to compare their results with similar organizations.
  • Looking for an objective evaluation their development program.
  • Trying to diversify their funding streams.
  • Engaged in the strategic planning process.
  • Looking at restructuring their Development Office.
  • Seeking to take their program to a higher level of professionalism.
If it's time for a peek under the hood, we would be glad to help.
