Development Assessment & Planning

Take a deep dive into your development program to understand its performance, uncover underlying opportunities and create a plan for success.

Our approach is holistic, examining your care for support, leading effectiveness, donor capacity and engagement and development structure.

Foundations & Corporations

Activate corporate donors and institutional investment by demonstrating your alignment with their organizational goals and values.

Grants, sponsorships and partnerships are strategies for success with targeted funders looking for the right investment opportunities.

Prospect Research

Work with knowledgeable development consultants to target philanthropists and prospective funders that can help your organization achieve its philanthropic goals.

Through access to wealth and prospect databases, we distill a list of your most capable donors.

We assess your internal capacity to manage a campaign; test your ambitions with your most likely donors; and develop a game plan to surpass your fundraising goal.

Get tailored and creative ideas to motivate your most generous donors to meet their philanthropic and personal goals.

Successful philanthropic strategies, through outright gifts, deferred gifts or impact investments can ensure the vibrancy and viability of your organization for years to come.

“Schultz & Williams consultants didn’t just help Lenape Valley Foundation prepare for our first capital campaign – with an initial goal that we have exceeded – they also guided us to a strategy and structure that will make philanthropy and fundraising more central to our entire organization moving forward.”

– Alan Hartl, Chief Executive Officer, Lenape Valley Foundation

“In 2016, we engaged Schultz & Williams to develop key new fundraising messaging and execution strategies. Schultz & Williams’ DC-based team has been instrumental in our ability to move our fundraising efforts to the next level.
