The Difference

Our

outsourced nonprofit fundraising development services

usually focus on interim development staffing and fund management consulting firms.

Development Consulting Solutions prides itself on being the small non-profit consulting firm serving clients throughout the Northeastern United States. As such, they provide exceptionally credentialed service to these organizations through a value-based approach and an in-residence based model.

It is Development Consulting Solutions philosophy that a consultant can only actually know an organization’s mission and culture when they spend a set number of days per month in residence at the organization. They not only provide exemplarily strategic advice but also implement this advice through acting as interim development staff and as campaign solicitors.

Unlike other consulting firms, the consultant bases the fee structure on the campaign goal to stay within campaign cost ranges that a donor would find acceptable. In most cases, this range is between 7 -10% of the actual campaign goal.
