Our Experience Matters

Team Up for Success

With a new strategic plan that required significant resources, the school needed outside expertise for its first-ever campaign. Compass conducted a Readiness Assessment and helped implement the recommendations. Teaming with leadership, Compass provided both high-level strategic direction and day-to-day advice. The accountability and guidance from Compass enabled CRMS to successfully complete a $10 million campaign, and the team acquired the skills needed to fundraise on their own.

The Compass Group always finishes a campaign leaving a better philanthropy effort in their wake. They do not use a formulaic consulting system like so many pricey firms do. They are good people who know how to work with both staff and volunteers.
