Advancement / Development Counsel

Advancement Program Assessments

Our objective analysis of development resources, programming, and infrastructure provides specific recommendations to improve productivity, effectiveness, and constituent engagement.

The assessment process may identify specific areas that need ongoing support and counsel. Our staff will work with the organization’s leadership, development staff and board/volunteers to enhance their performance and bolster best practices. At the onset of these activities, we identify Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to be accomplished over a specified period of time and design a roadmap to achievement.
