There is no more important determinant of the success of a fundraising program than the quality of staff leadership. The difference between a skillful and effective professional and an ineffective one can be measured in tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars, lost time, and damaged donor relationships. DeLauro and Associates will assist you in the selection process by developing an accurate and attractive position description, helping you to establish a competitive salary range, and using our broad and national network of fundraising contacts, to identify qualified candidates for your consideration who would not usually respond to employment advertising.
DeLauro and Associates’ would be pleased to help you develop best practice policies to guide your financial practices in the following areas:
- Net Asset Classifications
- Net Assets Released from Restriction
- Contribution Revenue
- Operating Expenses
- Transfers to Hospital
- Agency Transactions and SFAS 136
- Investments and Investment Activity
Effective and regular communication with existing and prospective donors is a key component of their involvement in your cause. They won’t help you if they don’t know your organization and its mission, and have positive feelings about them. DeLauro and Associates can help you to develop a comprehensive donor communication program including the writing and production of newsletters, press releases, videos, and campaign materials.
If your hospital is considering a possible affiliation or partnership, DeLauro and Associates can help you plan and prepare for that possibility. We offer planning, preparation, and communication strategies for board members, donors, and other stakeholders in advance of non-profit mergers and for-profit acquisitions.
No matter how successful they have been, fundraising programs periodically need to reenergize their board and staff. Engaging in a deliberate strategic planning process can effectively combine the wisdom and aspirations of the organizations’ board and key constituents with market information and best practices in the field to develop a shared vision of the future. DeLauro and Associates can help you identify specific key objectives to focus the activity of the board and staff to the achievement of your goals.
