Properly assessing your college’s ability to achieve its fundraising goals is a critical part of campaign preparation. We will use proven metrics and feedback from key stakeholders to provide you with a plan for preparing to launch a successful campaign.
A Development Assessment is designed to gauge how well you and your institutional advancement office is positioned to raise funds through a campaign or other activities. We review your staffing, performance, and processes related to generating, investing, and spending resources. We'll also talk with your leadership team, representative foundation and governing board members to determined support for the institutional advancement office activities.
Finally, we'll compare all of these attributes to best practices in the field. The result of your Development Assessment will be a comprehensive written report that provides an analysis of current status plus recommendations for improvement. Any recommendations will also come with projected timelines, budgets, and any other operational considerations tailored to the culture of your community college or organization.
