Dedicated to capacity-building fund development, CapDev applies the core principles of strong leadership and donor base development, case for support and infrastructure to achieve results in: capital and endowment campaigns, feasibility studies, development assessments, board and staff development, major gift solicitations, case writing, prospect identification, research, cultivation, and enlistment.
We achieve results by relying on our knowledge of four proven components of successful philanthropy: Case for Support, Leadership, Donors, and Infrastructure
"Our approach to fundraising consulting work is to maintain a broadened perspective on our client's mission. Our goal is not only a successful fundraising initiative (meeting your campaign goal, for example), but perhaps more importantly, helping to build your capacity overall by leading you into more sustainable fund development."
- Allan Burrows, President, Capital Development Services
"In my professional life I have been involved in four major campaigns, and CapDev is 'head and shoulders' above any consultant or consulting company I have ever worked with. CapDev was professional and very thorough in an internal campaign readiness study and a campaign feasibility study. Their Senior Counsel is not only a trusted advisor but I feel like she is a member of my staff."
Lennie Barton, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Meredith College
