More than anything else, leadership determines your fundraising success. While some consider leadership an art, it is now recognized as a science of psychology. Fundraising volunteers possess different strengths and experiences, and it takes skill to bring out the best in individuals for the good of the whole. Compass leverages the powerful combination of our study of the science of leadership alongside our experience across an incredibly diverse portfolio of nonprofit clients. This approach has the power to move interdependent systems forward—and have a dramatic impact on an organization’s fundraising efforts.  

Compass provides coaching to build strong teams and individuals at all levels of your organization, including your board, volunteers, and staff. This service is highly customized and may include individual coaching, focus groups, and workshops to engage and develop fundraising skills. Our most requested trainings include Campaign 101, Messaging, and The Perfect Ask.  

Navigating and fulfilling an organization’s philanthropic mission can be challenging, even for highly skilled fundraising organizations—especially when going it alone. Our clients benefit from our consultants’ perspectives, expertise, constant guidance, and coaching.
