Month 1

Our goal is to identify your current fundraising reality.


Together, we will seek to review solicitation response rates; fundraising cost effectiveness; donor retention; donor attrition; donor upgrade rates; average gift size; and solicitor performance. It's like when you take your car to the mechanic and the first thing they do is look under the hood. 


  • A written current conditions assessment to present to your board and team identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats

  • A better understanding of what types of data you should be tracking regularly to increase revenue

  • A suggested roadmap for the way forward and a personal leadership growth plan


Month 2

Our goal is to help you discern the best route to build the most effective, efficient and sustainable fundraising plan for your unique ministry. 


Together, we will review a variety of proven strategies and best practices. We will help you create SMART Goals for each strategy determined to bring the most fruit. In addition, we will review your messaging and marketing communications and make suggestions to bring increased clarity and purposeful donor relationships.


  • A written funding plan with SMART goals

  • A written messaging and communications strategy to create a compelling case for support​​

  • A plan to reactivate lapsed supporters

Month 3

Our goal is to help you start to launch the various strategies.

Month 4

Our goal is to identify gaps or obstacles that need to be addressed as you navigate your way forward.


After four months with your coach, you will be equipped with tools and empowered with confidence to advance your fundraising efforts.  


You will have continued access to our blogs and resource library. Maintaining a relationship is important to us. We can discuss what continued engagement would look like after our contract concludes.

I have loved my time being coached by Flagship! Emily and Taylor are not only co-laborers in Kingdom work, but I now consider them great friends! They both listened to my desires and goals, and they joined right in where I needed their expertise the most. They are both down to earth, super relatable, and available. They exceeded my expectations for what a consulting relationship could be! I highly recommend you give them an opportunity to take your fundraising efforts to the next level.  During our 4-month program we raised an additional $40,000 and have proposals being considered for $50,000+!
