What we do

we develop powerful strategy to maximise community impact

strategic impact review

The development of a comprehensive strategy that ensures you are in the strongest possible position to achieve your vision is the first step in our unique process. Our Strategic Impact Review is a framework based on the impact you are having in the community that enables you to focus on the programs that will make the most difference. It includes the identification of your top priority projects and any organisational capacity gaps that could be barriers to you developing the depth of relationship that is required for investors to make significant investments.

Our belief is that fundraising is more successful in the long term when it is a by-product of good, impactful activities underpinned by a well set-up organisation rather than an aggressive sales campaign approach. This is the basis of our strategic approach to building your capacity.

strategic fundraising plans

We create a tactical, actionable plan that includes a detailed tactics timeline for all the actions in the plan. We don’t write a high-level plan and leave you to work out the details. We define exactly what needs to be done and then work side-by-side with you to execute it!

strategic plan

We work with you to create a strategic plan that will provide a focused direction, clear goals and the strategies for achieving those goals. Using a theory of change as the basis of our deliberations, we will challenge you to describe your aspirations and choose where you will play, how you will play successfully and what capabilities you will need to have to achieve the impact you desire. The outcome will be a plan with the focus that is critical to achieve the impact you seek, and a team of people aligned behind it.
