HOW CGC CAN HELP →
CGC’s development team will integrate themselves into your organization and develop a comprehensive understanding of your organization’s mission, resources, and brand. Once CGC has familiarized themselves with your organization, they will begin to conduct corporate prospect research, market analysis, and cross reference potential corporate partners with your current resources.
Once the research has been completed, CGC will collaborate with your team to begin building marketing materials with clear and direct calls to action. The marketing materials will serve as valuable fundraising tools integral to your fundraising success. Your team will have opportunities to review, monitor, and leave feedback on every aspect of the copy and design of these materials.
Upon completion of the marketing materials, CGC will work alongside your team to strategize and build a development roadmap that includes clear plans for individual giving, corporate giving, and board management.
CGC’s development team will continue to conduct prospect research and create presentations for potential corporate partners as well as focus on cultivating relationships, leveraging established resources, and holding board members accountable.
