Strategies for Sustainability

Reviewing & Developing Sustainable Fundraising Programmes

Often for-purpose organisations require assistance to create sustainable growth and a paradigm shift in giving relationships. Giving Architects’ organisational reviews and development programmes identify needs and opportunities associated with these changes. We help our clients build capacity and capability to strengthen performance for optimal fundraising programme delivery. We initially define the resources and requirements using a capacity assessment tool. By mapping current activity against opportunities, We then identify pathways that optimise fundraising outcomes and achieve sustainability, a key requirement in world that has changed 



Fundraising Strategy Reviews, Feasibility Studies,Campaign Readiness Assessments and Impact Investment Readiness Assessments

Campaign Readiness Assessments, Feasibility Studies, Impact Investment Readiness Assessments and Fundraising Strategy Reviews are typically the first steps in engaging key stakeholders for capital campaigns, major donor programmes, impact investments or when developing a sustainable fundraising programme. They are often the first stage when our clients are assessing their potential for success. This process informs our clients next steps, whether to proceed confidently, deal with early warning signs or identify early opportunities and priorities when establishing high value programmes These stakeholder engagements can also result in early commitments from generous supporters and influential advocates. Giving Architects deliver clear strategic pathways from these proven and reliable processes.
