Mission Critical:  Contact Us Now

As top nonprofit Leaders know, today’s nonprofit fundraising campaigns thrive on major gifts, annual appeals, and capital campaigns. Thus, our constantly shifting fundraising environment can frustrate the most experienced executives and development staff — resulting in nothing happening. 

To add to the challenge, Nonprofits face intense competition for major gifts; especially, when major donors begin to feel “tapped out.” Therefore, to move forward, you cannot afford getting bogged down in endless meetings with no progress.  Hence, our fundraising counsel brings best practices to your table with real solutions for fundraising.  You can design and develop strategic plans — expending time and money for years — often with few or no concrete results, or you can invest in a much smaller amount in the three “Ps”, which are our Process, People, and expert Fundraising Products that are tailored to your needs. As a result, see a seven or eight figure return on investment.  Finally, call today!

Limited budget or staff? Start with low cost options.

Fundraising Campaigns MeetingStop losing valuable time and money!  First of all, Carlton & Company can review your overall visibility and fundraising strategy to help you fill “hidden gaps” that may be draining your staff hours and budget.  We can begin with an easy phone call and, if desired, a confidential remote program analysis.  Consequently, when you are ready, we can visit with you on site for a full day or more.  In conclusion, you quickly can reap the benefits of world-ranked guidance without any long-term contract or commitment.

What can you do when your Board sees building or maintenance or capital needs piling up, year after year, but you can never see a way clear to address them?  In this example, Carlton & Company can help in the complicated “planning to plan” stage. Especially if your staff or volunteers cannot easily add a major campaign to their already heavy workloads.  Finally, whatever your challenges, the sooner our experts begin working with you and alongside you, the faster your fundraising campaign can move forward!  Thus, give us a call, let’s at least begin a conversation.
