PAINLESS PROSPECTING FUNDER RESEARCH

 Many organizations lack the time, staff, and paid databases needed to uncover and pursue new funding sources. As a result, too many live in a constant state of urgency when it comes to fundraising, taking focus from their missions. Serving as a short-term skilled extension of an organizations’ team, the Painless Prospecting researchers uncover new prospective funders with reasonable-to-high likelihood of funding our client and provide coaching on optimal ways to engage those funders. From rapidly secured donations of $5,000 to grants of $500,000 and more, Black Fox Philanthropy has helped clients uncover and engage mission-aligned new funders. 

A robust grant pipeline is vital to cultivating new funder partnerships, but many nonprofit organizations lack the time, staff and paid database resources for uncovering these funding sources. Through Painless Prospecting, Black Fox Philanthropy serves as a highly skilled short-term extension of your staff, making it financially accessible to organizations in the trenches of fundraising that need added bandwidth to uncover new grantors through extensive funder research.

ADVANCEMENT OUTREACH

This unique service has been designed for organizations with capacity for tremendous impact but lack the internal bandwidth to cultivate new funding relationships. Recognizing that the primary fundraiser’s time is best invested in face-to-face meetings, not cultivating relationships that can take months to develop, we serve as highly-skilled team members who are able to secure invitations to submit an LOI or grant application, and/or to advance relationships with funders by securing key meetings at conferences and beyond, while setting the stage for success in securing funding partnerships. 

Black Fox Philanthropy will serve as an extension of your organization’s staff for a six (6) month period of time to provide informed, targeted, expert outreach via email and phone calls to funders in your existing pipeline, alongside new funders uncovered in a Painless Prospecting process. The selected funders will be vetted for likelihood of near-term funding; however, note that institutional funder engagement typically has a longer cultivation cycle. Black Fox Philanthropy will also apply the lens of longer-term success so that your organization can continue a growth trajectory.

Our professional grant writers can create one comprehensive grant template that can be used for multiple grant submissions, or serve as an ongoing extension of a development team to increase both the quality and volume of targeted grant or Letter of Inquiry (LOI) submissions.
