An Introduction to the Custom Approach to Development
Over the past 20 years, our consultants have worked with the most eclectic array of clients - mission, budget size, location, demographics and culture. The common thread for successful development among 100 of these clients is evaluating the client's position on the organization’s trajectory, and then organizing and prioritizing best business development practices for the organization. This formula, no matter the varying characteristics of an agency, optimizes ability to meet unique needs and challenges.
In short, at Cogeo, we pride ourselves in meeting the client where they need to be met, given the necessary tasks at hand.
How does our consulting accomplish this, and when is it relevant?
The work ranges from performing an institutional audit, conducting an agency retreat, a major gifts effort (if the agency is not in a capital campaign) installing a planned giving marketing program, performing planning studies that lead to capital campaigns (or not) and special events.
“Not every organization is or should have the goal to aspire to be a university development office today. Nonprofits that have the most success with development really understand who they are and which sequential tactics to implement, with quality.”
- Patrick Sampson, CEO
"We are excited to present at the Idaho Nonprofit Center Statewide Conference. Participants will return to their offices charged with relevant tasks to significantly improve the quality of their development work.”
- Rob Kusel, Managing Director of Consulting Services
