From Ideas and Plans
to Learning Experiences
to Money

No other consulting firm matches Chora’s track record and commitment to success. Chora’s principals have raised over $800 million for a variety of cultural and educational projects. As part of our commitment to strengthen organizational capacity, we will work with clients to develop and implement a fundraising plan. Chora will participate in the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of major gifts and help develop confidence in the in-house project team.

A sound feasibility study, combined with a detailed fundraising plan, is key to shaping the strategic direction and tactics of any fundraising efforts. Since most fundraising campaigns require substantial involvement from volunteers, a fundraising plan must look beyond financial targets and campaign objectives. It must be specific enough to serve as an action plan for the campaign and organize volunteers to maximum advantage.

Chora’s fundraising plans include core strategies, key outcomes, and a statement of needs, schedule and budget, and a prospect pool of at least 50 qualified and rated potential supporters. A well-documented, prioritized prospect pool (including research on giving capacity, financial data, contact information, volunteer connections, and individualized cultivation strategies) is indispensable for any effective campaign.

Armed with a proven effective plan and prospect pool, Chora leads the implementation of campaigns by tapping its network in the corporate, foundation, government and high net worth individual domains. Chora actively staffs cultivation and solicitation meetings, trains volunteers, designs and develops fundraising materials and authors sponsorship proposals and foundation grants.
