RSC is pleased to offer this array of services to help you get fundraising growth Now! ...and in the future.
Results matter. Now.
Development Counsel Day: Explore how an RSC consultant can improve your fundraising program. You bring your Board Chairman, CEO and Development Director; we'll bring fresh ideas, on-the-spot problem solving and thoughtful feedback on how to improve your results. If you know something isn't "quite right" with your fundraising program, then an RSC Development Counsel Day can help.
Assessments: Is your Annual Fund consistently achieving 8%-10% increases every year? If not, we can show you how to make it happen. RSC can look at all or just part of your program. We'll study it, understand it and provide solid ideas to maximize giving. Telefunding in decline? Board giving hit a plateau? Overall program underperforming? An RSC Assessment will evaluate your historical results, pinpoint the reasons for any shortcomings and then provide you with expert financial models and tactical recommendations that will set the stage for your organization's Annual Fund growth. Ready for growth now? Then an RSC Assessment is the perfect place to start.
Ongoing Counsel: Action Plans are helpful but often fall to the wayside without some regular direction. RSC provides you with a system of plans, timelines and strategies for growth; we also provide you with the ongoing expertise necessary to ensure success. RSC clients are most successful when they fully utilize our expertise for growth.
Interim Management: Sometimes you don't need an advisor — you need an expert to simply get to the business of raising money. This is often most true while you are "between staff". RSC is available during those times and we'll get results. While you focus on your search, RSC acts as an "interim department head" to ensure that the fundraising activities critical to your organization's success continue without interruption.
Virtual Fundraising Coach™: Designed especially for smaller arts and cultural organizations, the Virtual Fundraising Coach™ takes RSC's proven fundraising method and combines it with easy-to-use technology to create the most effective, efficient and personalized service available. You'll get a coach who will keep you on-track to achieve real results – now – and all at a fraction of the cost of a full consulting engagement.
RSC On-Demand™: If your organization is ready to take full ownership of growing its Annual Fund base, RSC can help guide the way. Through our “RSC On-Demand™” service, you get the expertise you need, when you need it and at a greatly reduced fee. This is our most affordably-priced service. Rather than having a rigid system that requires tremendous levels of coordination, RSC On-Demand™ is a simple arrangement that gives you direct access to a qualified RSC fundraising professional, as you need it.
Results matter. In the future.
Feasibility Studies for Capital & Endowment Campaigns: How much can you raise? How long will it take? Are you ready? RSC can help your organization answer these questions and determine the level of success which could be achieved in a major gift campaign. RSC studies includes interviews with a diverse cut of your stakeholders. When we're done, a statistical analysis and narrative assessment will follow with substantial feedback to help answer all of the important questions before you launch a major fundraising campaign.
Board Development Services: RSC can help you develop a mature board that is committed to successful fundraising, stewardship and promotion of your institution. Often, this program is an outgrowth of an assessment and generally involves a full-day board retreat with periodic follow-ups over a three-to-six-month time frame. If your Board needs to become more engaged in the fundraising program, RSC can show them how.
