Our first meeting with you is to get to know your organization and your needs, and it's free of charge. Afterwards, we'll prepare a detailed service proposal with no obligation on your part.
Solutions in Philanthropy
Development of Case Statements (Case for Support)
The case statement is a necessary document for all nonprofit organizations. It contains key messages to promote your nonprofit and raise awareness among potential donors. The case for support describes the organization, its accomplishments, its vision and its impact in the community. It presents specific needs and what donations will be used for, as well as different ways to support the cause and make a difference.
The case statement can be used as a whole or in part on your website and in social media, in funding requests, with staff and your board of directors, in meetings with potential donors and in various media publications.
Development of Fund Proposals
Your fund development efforts certainly include fund development proposals to different funders such as government, foundations and corporations. These stakeholders have very specific criteria that organizations must meet in order to obtain the requested funding. Espace idées understands that this can be a time consuming task and therefore offers a proposal writting service to help nonprofits fulfil this need.
Fund Development Plans
Do you keep putting the writting of your fund development plan on the back burner? Do you organize annual events without taking long term funding into consideration? The development of a strong fund development plan is essential to achieve your fundraising objectives and to guide your organization. It is a necessary tool that can save you time, energy and money in the long run if it is well structured and thought out.
Espace idées can help you identify and personalize your solicitations and determine which fund development programs are best adapted for your organization.
Evaluation and Action Plans for Your Fundraising Activities
You’ve invested significant efforts in the planning, organizing and execution of your fundraising events, but didn’t reach your expected results? You’re wondering why you didn’t attain your objective?
Espace idées can help you analyze your fundraising activities to evaluate what works well and what could be improved. Our experience in event organization will enable us to make recommendations and provide advice for the next edition of your activity.
In addition, Espace idées can guide you in the development of a new activity. We can create an action plan with a detailed task list, schedule, budget, planning of solicitations and volunteer needs. We’ll make sure that you’re able to carry out your activity by providing the necessary plan and tools.
Donor Relations Programs
Acknowledgment, recognition and communications are three crucial elements to maintain donor loyalty. We can help you devise a donor relations plan specific to your needs and those of your donors.
Espace idées subscribes to a reputable national donor database which is updated on a regular basis and contains foundation, corporate and government program profiles. We can conduct targetted research for your organization and provide you with a report highlighting all pertinent information for the preparation of funding requests.
Planning of Microsites for Fundraising Activities
Microsites that incorporate peer-to-peer fundraising have almost become a necessity for organizations planning events, largely because they are so effective and efficient at reaching participants and potential donors. We can help you identify the crucial elements required for your microsite, and then work with your chosen fundraising platform provider to build the microsite. The Espace idées team developed a very successful microsite for a local nonprofit, which has surpassed the one million dollar mark for a single event in just a few years.
