Development Audits

During a development audit, CCS consultants can assess your fundraising programme from a number of angles using both quantitative and qualitative analysis. Areas we investigate can include:

  • Your organisation’s mission and vision statement
  • Prior strategic plans
  • Goals
  • Internal leadership and staffing
  • Financials
  • Systems and processes
  • Annual fundraising
  • External leadership and volunteers
  • Previous campaigns
  • Other audits, tailored to your organisation’s priorities

gift planning assessments

Planned giving has become an increasingly central focus for many nonprofit development teams. CCS Fundraising experts have deep expertise in this space, and access to a dedicated Gift Planning Team, to help guide our partners in enhancing their planned giving strategies. Our gift planning assessments discern the following:

  • Donor demographics
  • Giving histories, preferences, capacities, and interests
  • Peer comparisons
  • Trends in giving and related major gift officer activities
  • Under-engaged or “new” prospects
  • Staff and volunteer needs
  • Partnership opportunities
