Fundraising Strategies

Fundraising Strategies



We work with you and your development team to help put your best foot forward in order to attract funders to partner in your work. 


We use current research, industry trends and benchmark similar organizations to identify unique opportunities for building capacity through funding.


Based on our assessment and findings, we develop a comprehensive and feasible fund development plan to accelerate your mission.


Funding Analysis

We review your past and current portfolio of funding to identify trends and potential opportunities.  We identify your goals and service areas and determine your readiness and capacity for funding growth. Our analysis assists the leadership to focus on the areas that are the best fit.

Research & Data

We will review the current research, assess industry trends and benchmark other organizations. The types of research available include the following: 1) identification of funding priority areas in your industry based on policy and research trends; 2) opportunities for business growth in potential new service areas; 3) a customized grant prospect list based on priorities; and 4) research to support a grant proposal.

Fund Development Plan

A strong organization has multiple funding sources. We develop a comprehensive, actionable fund development plan to increase and diversify your organization’s funding. We keep it simple by focusing on 3-5 key funding opportunities over a specific period of time to deliver short-term and long-term results. The goal is results, and the plan provides the road map to get there.

Grant Writing

We understand the different types of funders and their grant application process. We know what funders want and how to interpret and follow complex federal, state or private grant applications. We are available to support your efforts at all levels of grant development including the strategy, research, narrative, and final submission.

“I have had the privilege of working with Transform Consulting Group on several projects. Transform Consulting Group is excellent at writing and editing, helping to articulate complicated issues and plans quickly and effectively. I have also observed their skills in managing programs during implementation. I have been impressed by their servant leadership with their clients, as well their collegian management of other associates affiliated with Transform Consulting Group. One thing that I especially appreciate about the work of Transform Consulting Group is their consistent, calm competence under pressure. Their good humor –and ability to get things done– truly makes Transform Consulting Group a joy to work with.”
