Our approach is holistic, examining your case 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.

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.

Case Study: Saint Francis University

Founded in 1847, Saint Francis University (SFU), one of the oldest Catholic, Franciscan institutions of higher education in the United States, is committed to providing a holistic liberal arts educational experience that promotes each student’s unique personal, spiritual and professional development.

Case Study:

UsAgainstAlzheimer’s has a goal of preventing and effectively treating Alzheimer’s by 2025. Combining the force of possibility and the power of optimism, their approach has been to disrupt the status quo, identify the barriers to success and fight for a cure.  

Case Study: Lenape Valley Foundation

S&W partnered with LVF over nearly three years, not only to raise vitally important funds for The Lodge at Lenape Valley Foundation, but also to introduce a full-fledged ongoing development program that would continue after the campaign is completed.

Testimonials

“Thank you! thank you to Kathy Watson, Pat Voigt and the Schultz & Williams team for the guidance and counsel you offered to us over many years. Thank you for your honesty and forthright assessment of what we, Valley Forge Educational Services, needed to do to get a capital campaign off the ground. Our revised goals are derived directly from the outcome of the study you conducted for us, as well as your advice on how to proceed. We feel good about where we are and confident we now have a solid major gifts officer who will steer us into a successful major gift program…and eventually, a capital campaign.”

– Grace A. Fornicola, Ph.D., Executive Director Valley Forge Educational Services

“We were quite pleased with the work of S&W during our Called to Serve: Fulfilling the Promise campaign. It was an easy decision to ask for their assistance with our campaign to rebuild Sullivan Hall into the home of our School of Health Sciences. Scott Schultz, Matt Brown and the entire talented S&W staff have been a pleasure to collaborate with since 2003. They know us… we know them… it’s a great relationship.”

-Robert Crusciel, Vice President for Advancement, Saint Francis University

“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. They have also provided effective strategic counsel in a number of areas related to organizational efficiency and structure, and on staffing and Board development needs. Schultz & Williams has been, and we hope will remain, a true partner with UsAgainstAlzheimer’s as we continue to grow and improve our fundraising efforts..”

– Sally J. Sachar, Chief Operating and Program Officer, USAgainstAlzheimer’s

"HealthSpark Foundation had the idea of North Penn Commons, aligning with its focus to encourage collaboration and partnership to achieve improved systems efficiencies and programmatic outcomes. In order to launch the project and bring it to fruition, Schultz & Williams conducted a capital campaign feasibility study, prepared a case statement and developed a brand identify - all essential ingredients of the successful four-year campaign. These elements helped the four organizations 'own the project,' conveying a sense of opportunity and possibility to the Board, staff, consumers and the community at-large."

- Russell Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer, HealthSpark Foundation

"When we needed an interim Director of Development for a six-month period, Schultz & Williams provided a consultant who was the perfect fit for our operation.  She got along well with the development staff,  worked productively with the Dean and Board of Overseers, and helped the School achieve meaningful development goals before the end of its fiscal year.  As part of our engagement, our consultant also enabled a seamless transition to a new, permanent Director of Development."
