The Constellation: Let us do the heavy lifting.

Don’t risk the future of your organization by investing in the wrong fundraising solutions.

Small nonprofits need to fundraise to meet their missions, but often they don’t know how to meaningfully invest. Too often we see:

It's simple - let us run your fundraising program. That's right - eliminate the stress and overwhelm of trying to "do it all" and let our network of trained consultants manage the day-to-day of your fundraising needs.

 

The Constellation is a group of independent fundraising consultants who have been certified to deliver fundraising implementation services as part of The Good Partnership's network. They follow the same process and are supported directly by The Good Partnership on an ongoing basis to support clients through fundraising implementation.

How it works:

Risk-Free

Hiring in-house comes with a lot of risk and not much reward. Just imagine getting better fundraising results without hiring staff, proving space for them, and managing their day-to-day activities. Forget staff turnover or only hiring someone “your budget can afford”. We provide the best in small-shop fundraising at a budget you can afford, taking away your risk.

Your Relationships

We respect the work you’ve already put into building your relationships and they will always stay with your organization. When we act on your behalf, we’re representing your organization. We do not bring donors to your organization, nor do we take them with us when we leave.

Results Oriented

We balance short-term priorities with building the long-term sustainability of your fundraising program. While we help you raise money today, we do so with the future in mind. We want to leave your organization stronger than when we started.

Return on Investment

Fundraising success takes time and consistency. Your results depend on where you are starting and what your fundraising priorities are.

 

When is the right time to make this investment? That depends on your ambitions for your organization. The Good Partnership exists to make the most of your investment.

FAQs

How is this different than hiring a staff member?


Usually small organizations have limited budgets for staffing, which means they end up hiring someone junior without much fundraising strategy or expeirence. That person usually ends up spending a lot of time and energy on things that are not moving things forward. Instead, with that budget you can hire a member of our Constellation who brings over 10 years of fundraising experience to the table with a passion for implementation and getting it done. Our clients love this solution to help them grow strategically. An added benefit is that members of our Constellation require less supervision meaning less stress for the ED! Bonus!




How much does it cost?


Hiring a member of our constellation costs between $4,000 and $5,000 per month plus HST. You hire the consultant directly and there are no hidden costs. Contracts start at 12 months.




What is included in "implementation"?


Each organization is unique and your fundraising strategy should be unique to you. Members of The Constellation are fundraising generalists and can do it all - from individual giving and major gifts, to grant writing or sponsorships. The only thing we don't do are large events. We start each engagement with a Strategic Planning process to develop a clear fundraising plan with goals and activities to move your fundraising forward. Then, we do the work! Implementation means writing appeals, managing your data, working with your program team to write and submit grants, building relationships, managing sponsorships, doing social media, etc. We help you figure out which activites are a priority and then we do them. We even stuff envelopes when needed!




Do you guarantee results?


We do not. Fundraising success takes time and consistency. Your results depend on where you are starting and what your fundraising priorities are. Our clients so far have seen a minimum of a 2.3X ROI in the first 12 months of working with us and an average of 6X in the second year.




Do we get to choose which member of The Constellation we get to work with?


Of course! We do a little match making, but ultimately, you decide the right fit for your organization and you are under no obligation to work with someone that's not right for you.




How many hours a week do we have access to our consultant?


Here's a novel approach - we don't track hours! That's right - we focus on deliverables and outcomes. Members of the constellation are expeirenced and efficient and take on only the amount of clients they can handle as well as how much they want to work (shocker - not everyone wants to work 60 hours/week - LOL). Our clients are delighted at the level of support they receive.
