We listen carefully, as clients explore their regional, national, or international aspirations, and then work together to develop a plan, with specifically defined objectives, to achieve the identified goals. We then achieve the goals.

We specialize in:

  • Alumni “Program Audits” for Campaigns – Comprehensive program “audit” and strategic planning to properly position your alumni operations for a successful upcoming or ongoing campaign.

  • Interim Alumni Director with "In-House" Consulting and Staff Training – Significant and lasting value as your "bridge" to the next Alumni Director. Our 30 years of experience will be leveraged to maintain and enhance current programs, conduct ongoing in-house strategic planning, train staff, and support the search for and transition to your ideal new Alumni Director.

  • Alumni Engagement – Dynamic on and off campus programs and activities that "set the table" for tremendous fundraising successes in both annual fund and major gifts.

  • Regional Programs and Volunteer Boards – Tremendously successful regional programs that engage both current and next generation major donors in fun and meaningful ways year after year.

  • Comprehensive Metrics – Appropriately assess your alumni program to determine what's working and what's not.

  • Micro-targeting Analysis – Identify alumni "types" who are most likely to engage with your school (as event participants, volunteers and/or donors) and determine the specific motivational messaging that appeals to each "type."

  • Affinity Products – Enhancing your affinity products offerings to increase revenues.

  • Regional Campaigns – Strategic help to your development staff, facilitating efforts to identify, engage, cultivate and steward donors and prospects.

We have delivered tremendous results for our client family since 1988 in many areas, including:

  • Club/Chapter Programming
  • Reunions

  • Local and National Dues Programs
  • Admissions/Student Recruitment

At the client's option, our experienced staff is available to work hand-in-hand with school staff to achieve full implementation of the developed plan.
