Our Services

American Fundraising Institute will develop a custom tailored campaign plan that typically requires no more than 5-6 months to complete.  Campaign fees are established upfront and are significantly less than other firms.

During the campaign, we remain personally involved. After developing customized solicitation strategies, we utilize a limited number of key volunteers as “door openers”, but our staff accepts responsibility for making the ask to major prospects.  Instead of paying expensive fees to consultants while you do the work, we do the “heavy lifting.”

plan.
