We have a diversity of knowledge from foundation expertise to experience as direct service providers. Our individual donor fundraising has helped nonprofits to build a diversified base of support that is critical to minimizing a nonprofit's susceptibility to changing government and foundation priorities as well as the economy. We work with you to improve your board's ability to network and raise funds from a variety of sources. Our grantwriting has raised tens of millions of dollars from federal, state and private sources. We have a great deal of experience developing special events. We also have expertise in developing high-level fundraising strategy as well as working day-to-day on fundraising administrative/operational tasks.
We use tools such as targeted newsletters and appeals and annual reports to keep your membership informed and to continually drive donations. Our team manages databases, generates acknowledgements and provides clients with regular dashboards of donor data.
We research potential funders and write grants to private foundations as well as government agencies. Our team strategically works to maximize your return from grant applications.
DSA staff are experts on helping your organization identify and design strategies to maximize the income from major donors. We will educate you on the best way to approach donors and help develop and design leadership gift clubs through appeals and events.
Direct mail is still the most effective fundraising medium and it is many times more effective than email. DSA can process all mail pieces, including inserts and self mailers, and advise you in mailing best practices dealing with envelopes, delivery date, and other details concerning the post-office. Our services include eliminating duplicate names from merged lists and updating address changes. Whether mailing to one thousand or tens of thousands, we have the experience to have the maximum impact while keeping costs low.
