How Our Fundraising Counsel Works

Whether your need is in Annual Fund, Leadership Annual Giving, Major Gifts, Planned Giving – or all of the above – the fundraising consultants at Alexander Haas will partner with your nonprofit to help enhance your fundraising results. If you are looking to start a new program or have an established program that could benefit from a fresh, experienced, and objective set of eyes, the fundraising counsel provided by Alexander Haas can lead your organization to success.

We believe that annual giving and ongoing development programs are the backbone of a strong organization. We strive to provide counsel to nonprofit organizations to strengthen all aspects of their development program so that they can pursue their mission more effectively. We will also help organize annual fundraising plans, identify prospective donors, determine the best approach and strategies for cultivating donors for support, and position you to achieve your fundraising goals.

Our fundraising consultants will work with your professional staff and volunteer leadership to identify the challenges and bottlenecks that are keeping you from reaching your maximum fundraising potential. Then, we will develop strategies and tactics to emphasize your strengths and mitigate the challenges and we will be there to help you with implementation.

Our counsel will guide you in developing donor strategies, establishing best practices in systems and processes, refining your case and messaging, optimizing your structure and staff resources, coaching and training your senior staff, Board, and volunteers to be more effective as fundraisers, and developing and implementing short and long-term plans.
