Development Plan

Development Assessment & Plan

A Development Assessment and Plan begins with an in-depth review of an organization’s fundraising program to understand its status, donor constituency available for fundraising requirements and the leadership and staff necessary to complete its goals. Once completed and recommendations for improvement are made, the organization is prepared to implement its comprehensive development plan to maximize giving at all levels.

Working together with you, we will:

  • Gather information through documents and interviews

  • Share insights

  • Analyze fundraising efforts over several years

  • Study patterns and depth in your donor constituency

  • Look at the resources available to implement a successful plan which includes leadership and skilled staffing models

M. Gale offers Development Assessment and Plans for established fund development programs. If your organization is new to professional development, ask us about our Starter Development Plans.

We’ll help you gain the critical knowledge you need to develop strong, enduring relationships with your donors in order to maximize the impact of their gifts for your organization. Using proven principles developed over many years of fundraising consulting, we’ll help you create the “donor journey” uniquely tailored to your organization.

Becky Orander - Successful fundraising campaigns

Knowing that a significant amount of campaign funding would come from individual donors, it was important for us to select a consultant with the breadth of fundraising experience to integrate the campaign with our existing fundraising operation. M. Gale & Associates also provided staff coaching, strategic planning for our Board of Directors and conducted the feasibility study prior to our campaign.
