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.
Many clients opt for an expanded version of the Fundraising Diagnostic, which adds the development of overall fundraising strategies that will meet the fundraising growth goals of an organization. Firmly rooted in core findings in the Diagnostic phase, this strategic plan for fundraising focuses on optimal revenue streams and funding mix with a comprehensive strategy tied to your fiscal year calendar.
Transformational Stakeholder Retreats
A half or full day deep-dive workshop that will increase staff and board engagement in fundraising.

The result is a more fully utilized board and staff by engaging each member more effectively and strategically.

Major Gifts Strategy
We create the strategy and design the launch of a major gifts program for organizations that are ready to engage significant new major funders via a campaign, high net worth (HNW) giving circle, or events. The strategy and key marketing tools are based upon a deep dive analysis of donor data, benchmarking analysis of peer organizations, and utilizing focus groups comprised of existing and potential funders. The result is a comprehensive action plan for launching a robust major gifts program that focuses upon multi-year giving and unrestricted funds.
