MEDIATOR

Are there people giving to your organization at a modest level who have suggested they would be willing to give much more? And you just can’t figure out how to crack that nut? With an innate ability to connect with donors on a personal level, Clark has a gift for going into a meeting and asking the right questions to unlock these gifts. Sometimes there are issues a prospective major donor has with an organization and it’s easier for them to air these issues with a third party than someone who works for the organization. Clark can act as an intermediary between your organization & your prospective major donors to unlock funds.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

To get a million dollar gift you need a million dollar idea. Does your mission and vision excite your donors or have things gotten a little stale? Clark can work with you to develop compelling mission and vision, statements, establish strategic goals, identify and fill staffing needs, and produce a Case Statement (Prospectus) that will make your donors want to stand on their tiptoes to give like they’ve never given before. Your cause is important and if you feel stuck you owe it to your cause to get moving again. Clark can help.

CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT

Is your organization about to or already involved in a capital or special campaign to raise money far beyond your annual fundraising needs? Clark can manage the entire process, working with professional staff, board members, and volunteers, as well as meeting with and soliciting prospective major donors. Before you even embark on your campaign Clark can meet with prospective donors to assess the feasibility of your campaign.

Thanksgiving Week Calls to your donors

I often ask organizations whether they have a stewardship process or a donation receipt procedure. There's a big difference. Of course we must acknowledge the contributions of our supporters. We must send a gift receipt. We must say thank you. If you aren't doing...

Why the points system works
