Annual Fund Development

More and more organizations are seeking support for worthy purposes in our communities and those groups who continue to adapt and grow are very often the most successful in securing the funds necessary to continue and expand their mission. 

  • RGI offers a product to help evaluate organizational challenges and opportunities, measuring support within the community to better understand past giving decisions and ensure clear articulation of needs moving forward.
  • RGI will then develop strategies designed to address these needs through the creation of a well defined, manageable Annual Fund Development Plan. 
  • The research necessary to develop any Annual Fund Development Plan is carried out during a three-four month process. RGI will work with you and those closest to your organization to understand the various elements impacting your organization's ability to secure necessary funding.
  • RGI will then provide a written communication and fund development plan, which includes: strategies, personnel roles, organizational responsibilities, timelines and outcome measurement for use throughout the next two-three years. 
While not always necessary, many organizations continue to engage our staff long after the RGI Annual Fund Development Plan is presented to assist in the ongoing implementation of said plan.

Pre-Campaign Process (feasibility study)

Laying the groundwork for a successful campaign begins with crafting a plan to address needs, engaging leadership, initiating communication efforts and evaluating both the willingness and the capacity of the community to support a specific project. 

  • RGI's Pre-Campaign Process focuses on engaging stakeholders in an effort to increase their knowledge about the needs addressed through a pending capital project while gathering their input and measuring their ability and willingness to support the project through their investment of time, talent and financial resources. 
  • Depending on where you are in the process, RGI will work with you to determine what steps need to be taken to maximize the potential support for an eventual campaign through a cost-effective process building on a traditional feasibility study. 
At the completion of this three to four month process a Campaign Strategy Report is issued making recommendations about the possibility and advisability of proceeding with a capital campaign, probable levels of financial support and timing and staff options for successful completion of a campaign.
