The starting point for any consulting engagement is the discovery process. At Advocace, we utilize a variety of tools to help us get a complete overview of our ministry client partners. We understand that it is both necessary and prudent to conduct a thorough diagnosis before formulating and applying our recommended prescriptions.
12 Point Assessment
"Advocace is unique in providing a framework for analyzing our nonprofit clients. That framework puts the ministry into detailed focus and allows us to analyze the organization by its beliefs, its knowledge base, its strength of community, systems and leadership. We can apply our experience working with Christian nonprofits around the country to develop a baseline against which we can measure the performance and potential for growth at our client partners."
Through interviews and analysis, Advocace assesses your ministry’s capacity and ability to embark on a comprehensive development program to drive continuous funding for your ministry programs. The 12 point assessment, which serves as the basis for our recommendations, organizes our analysis around specific elements which drive your ministry’s success including: foundational beliefs, leadership, staffing, systems, data management, reporting, development culture, donor communications, major donor relationships, and board impact.
Advocace’s Donor Intelligence Research
Advocace uses surveys and interviews to obtain a more complete and accurate snapshot of your donor database profile. Advocace can help you apply these research findings to coordinate the specific action steps necessary to strengthen your ties to the donor community, generate higher levels of support from current donors, and identify and activate new donors by targeting individuals for personal relationships.
