Fundraising Strategy Development and Execution:
Carole Berke + Associates will work with you to develop the most effective and efficient strategy to meet your organization’s need. No matter the size of your budget, growth patterns bring challenges to existing resources. We carefully assess those current resources, work with you and your Board to determine feasible opportunities and then---hand in hand---we help implement the approved strategy.

Prospect Research:
Carole Berke + Associates will provide research tools and viable databases to help you identify new funding sources---whether they are individuals, foundations or corporations, we will match donors with your mission.

Foundation and Corporate Fundraising:
Foundation and Corporate fundraising often provides the financial under-pinning for many non-profits. But, corporate and foundation missions change, leaving organizations that have relied upon them on shaky turf. Carole Berke + Associates makes certain that nonprofits are current with funding sources interested in their mission. We prepare proposals and corporate solicitation materials to meet the needs for all levels of fundraising. We work with program officers to help facilitate the process from inquiry to actual proposal.

Event and Conference Logistics:
Successful fundraising and expert event management often rely upon each other. Carole Berke + Associates will help you determine theme, produce, and package your conferences and special events. We will help you select speakers, plan and manage workshop logistics, and prepare collateral materials needed for event and conference promotion. From pencils to site plan, Carole Berke + Associates will help you plan your events to maximize attendance and sponsorship.

Strategic Partnership Strategies:
