Donor-Driven Fundraising for HBCUs
Raising new dollars and new donors!
IOD’s fresh, unique, proven 21st-century approach to financial sustainability through donor-driven fundraising results in raising new major gifts from new and existing donors. We show you how to help donors accomplish their philanthropic goals, continue a family tradition or practice their personal values by investing in your mission. We then transfer the skills and tools to you, as quickly as possible, so you take control of your development function and are no longer dependent upon outside consultants.
Case for Support
IOD assists you in each step of a major gifts campaign starting with creating a clear and compelling Case for Support that builds donor confidence in your mission while providing opportunities for them to invest in your future.
We work with you every step of the way from copywriting to graphic design and from website development to social media campaign strategies.
IOD uses a proven, proprietary approach for conducting feasibility research that includes elements of traditional studies such as interviews with key constituents and stakeholders.
However, we also include more robust strategies including Board and Community surveys, Organizational Readiness Reviews, Stakeholder Focus Groups, and Alumni and Donor Prospect Surveys to ensure the validity and reliability of the findings.
Our approach is streamlined, scalable and economical, resulting in clarity about your campaign goals, an objective measure of the level of financial support you can expect, and added momentum to achieve results in the least amount of time.
IOD can help you plan and execute unique, compelling and memorable "Friendraising" Awareness events and Fundraising Signature events. Then we will teach, coach and rehearse with your Board, volunteers and staff on how to cultivate and solicit donors, and successfully complete the “Ask” with a donor prospect to include a request for a:
1. Multi-year gift to Annual Operations
2. One-time gift to a Capital Project, or
3. Gift to Endowment through Planned Giving
We show you how to bring in more revenue through results-focused digital strategies, website redesign, and marketing without the long timeline and expensive overhead.
We work side-by-side with you to craft digital products and plans built around your institution’s mission, goals, values, and the needs of those you serve.
Our team helps you stand out in the digital world, and produce measurable results based on the latest best practices in online giving.
Our grant writing solutions help nonprofits meet their fundraising goals by writing and managing the complete grant application process. Billions of dollars are awarded yearly to nonprofits just like yours, but it takes time, expertise, and experience to successfully obtain grants.
The competition is fierce, success rates are low, and hiring a full-time grant writer is expensive. We have a better solution based on years of experience having raised millions of dollars. We offer you a way to spend less and raise more. We, like you, want to make the world a better place by helping nonprofits get the funds they need to make it happen.
