CANFUND adds value through several proven, best-practice, complementary proprietary programs. We work with you to apply strategic thinking and practical action while ensuring that your organization’s risk profile remains within acceptable tolerances. At CANFUND, we recognize that different partners will have different needs. Not only do we offer a wide range of services, we will also gladly custom-fit our packages to your organization’s needs.
CANFUND offers a full range of programs and services for charities and non-profits:
Fund Development Plan – Many organizations limp from activity to activity without an overall plan. Our FDP process enables your board, staff and volunteers to develop ownership of a comprehensive strategic plan complete with short and long range goals, fund development initiatives appropriate to the organization, and the action steps to ensure success.
Foundation Repair Services – Our unique diagnostic approach provides your foundation (or fundraising department) with a critical audit and recommends changes that will transform your operation and significantly improve performance. FRS includes a review of current initiatives – whether direct mail, special events or major gifts – and recommendations for improvements. Subspecialties include evaluating database management, prospect research, and donor recognition/stewardship programs.
Core Donors Program– The forgotten middle. Where 1% of your donors give up to 30% of your revenue. CanFund can help you dramatically grow this vitally important segment of your donor population with customized Core Donors Program.
Campaign Planning Studies – Whether the purpose is a capital campaign, a new planned giving program or an e-mail/web campaign, our CPS service ensures that the planning and design stage is handled in a professional manner building on our 25 years of experience blended with our unique creative approach.
Board Training and Development – Board members and volunteers want to do the right thing and want to help raise funds, but they don’t know how. Our customizable BTD program will make your senior leadership comfortable playing an active role in fundraising.
Fundraising ToolKit – You wouldn’t go on a wilderness canoe trip without a first aid kit. Likewise, you shouldn’t send your volunteers out asking for money without an FTK. It's well-established that personal, face to face solicitation is one of the most effective fundraising techniques. Yet we're often asked why it is that volunteers are reluctant to go out and ask for money. Your board members and volunteers need a toolkit. They need practical, hands-on, proven resources that make it easier to make the ask.We’ll work with you to develop the right FundRaising ToolKit for your group.
Professional Solicitation Services – There are times when volunteer solicitors are the way to go; other times, you want professionals on your side making “The Ask.” We have experienced results-oriented Senior Advisors who can contact prospective donors on your behalf and ‘close the gift.’
