Development Assessment

“Many times you hire a consultant and wonder afterwards if the money was well spent.  In the case of the development assessment from Donor By Design I believe it was. Their advice will benefit us many times over as we move forward with our fund development.”

David Abbott, Former Board Chair, YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

Before you begin your next campaign, consider taking time to judge the readiness of your volunteers and staff with a Donor By Design Development Assessment.

This process offers a unique perspective on the perceptions, attitudes and confidence of your volunteers and staff. The summary report presentation at the conclusion of the assessment offers specific recommendations and strategies to educate and inspire your team before you head into your next campaign.

Our process includes:

  • Online survey
  • On-site interviews with key staff and volunteers
  • Audit of online and print communications

The assessment studies:

  • development culture and staff engagement
  • case articulation
  • board engagement
  • staffing
  • systems
