Fund Development


Driving your Mission Through Strategic Fund Development Initiatives

Attracting the funding support to advance your compelling mission is a multi-faceted challenge, and the DatocWitten Group Fund Development team, led by Barbara Witten, has years of experience helping organizations navigate that challenge.

We work with you to develop the resources that will support your mission.  The right fund development strategies for your entity are unique; they grow out of your mission, vision, values, culture, audience, history, geography, size, structure, capacities, technologies, strategic partners, stakeholders, environment, and more. We partner with you to accomplish what matters most in fund development and move you toward your mission.

We take a consultative, research-based approach to helping organizations optimize their mission advancement efforts.

We can assist you on a project basis or through ongoing, hands-on support to help expand and enhance your fund development program. Our team members are experienced in assessing development operations and strategies, developing annual plans and master calendars, writing case for support statements, planning and implementing major gifts and planned giving strategies, conducting feasibility studies, planning campaigns, and integrating marketing and communications with fundraising to support organizational objectives and expand fundraising capacity. Our fund development services include building board and leadership capacity, organization strategic development and donor stewardship.
