WHO WE ARE
Black Fox Philanthropy is comprised of a team of fundraising strategists serving global nonprofits. We are your skilled allies and trusted counsel in realizing your dream of a better world.
NAME A CHALLENGE; WE HAVE A SOLUTION.
Through data requests and conversations, Black Fox Philanthropy will work with you to gain a thorough understanding of your current funding pipeline, including funders who have funded your organization in the past, funders who have declined to fund you, and funders that are already on your radar. Excluding these funders, Black Fox Philanthropy will develop a pipeline of 50 new funder prospects, based on key characteristics you seek in new funders. Out of these 50, we will identify 15 “BFFs,” or Best Fit Funders, and clearly sketch out their ability to fund at the level you seek, any linkage to your organization, and their level of interest in your work based on their stated priorities and past grantees.
Maximizing an organization’s development capacity begins with a clear understanding of current strengths, weaknesses, staff abilities and systems. Black Fox Philanthropy analyzes your organization’s current internal landscape via a detailed intake process including an in depth interview with the primary fundraiser, a deep dive into donor systems and data, and a review of fundraising collateral and narrative. We then create context by analyzing a peer landscape and best practices. This pinpoints opportunities for improvement, insights to inform a strategic roadmap, while creating a baseline from which to measure year-over-year performance.
Transformational Stakeholder Retreats
A half or full day deep-dive workshop that will increase staff and board engagement in fundraising, while deepening their commitment to your mission. Our unique approach includes uncovering participant strengths and biases, while equipping all with the tools and confidence to be on the front lines with funders in a powerful way. The result is a more fully utilized board and staff by engaging each member more effectively and strategically.
