We all know that expecting better results from the same old techniques is not a good business model.

A system with a long history…. Professional fundraiser and 3 Run Single Media co-owner Shannon Schweigert began referring to the annual fund system promoted by his consulting firm GivingPoint as “Donor Evolution” in the late 2000’s. But its history dates back long before then.
Shannon began his fundraising career in 1992 at his alma mater University of Jamestown (Jamestown College) a private, liberal arts college in Jamestown, North Dakota. He learned fundraising “on the job” and was fortunate to be surrounded by successful “field-experienced” fundraisers from select private higher education institutions where raising money was not for the “wants” but for the “needs.”

Passionate About Our Clients

At the heart of successful fundraising is proper donor cultivation….
It is a given that the faces of your advancement/fundraising office will change, and sometimes change often without little time to prepare. Professional turnover in fundraising is prevalent. To protect your organization’s success and sustainability, we suggest you make a commitment to the tried-and-true concepts that will give you an edge in fundraising no matter your personnel, or more specifically personnel turnover. We adhere to the pillars of donor cultivation: 1. engagement with supporters in a real and meaningful manner, 2. participation from benefactors in the success of your mission, and 3. a steadfast commitment to donor stewardship.

Systems and process…
In support of these pillars is accountability; a commitment to the day-to-day tasks necessary to build philanthropic support across the continuum of gift and donor types. A distinct delineation between internal (awareness, impulse, repeat, and sustained giving) and external operations (personal cultivation, major gifts, gift plans, special projects, and capital campaigns). A process to identify respective donor thresholds, moving respective donor prospects into personal cultivation. And a system for institutional memory (data) so that what has been gained each year can be built upon the next

The science of fundraising…..
During a two-year stint in foundation administration, Shannon was afforded access to data from dozens of nonprofits of distinct sizes and success. It was here that he studied how donors truly move on the donor continuum in aggregate. This knowledge was applied to establish baseline benchmarks: the next stage of what would become the Donor Evolution System.

Milestones
