Donor Development

The Chaplaincy Institute relies on donations for over one third of our revenue.  Our staff could use assistance as follows to meet our goals:


· Coordinate logistics of fulfilling donor benefits to members of Giving Circles.

·  Data entry – input historical information into database on donors and members of ChI community (confidential)

·  Database development – capture and track foundations, corporations, and individuals prospects


Online Research

·  prospective donors to determine capacity, interest and potential for future giving.

·  donors giving to other “like” organizations to enhance donor prospect list.

·  Corporations that have interest in our constituents for corporate sponsorship

·  Foundations whose mission/guidelines are a match with ChI’s programs.



·   Coordinate auction or other fundraising events to raise funds for ChI



·  Define clear “value proposition” for donors and alumni

·  Develop “leave behind” piece for donor prospects


Outreach (Telephone)

·  Thank you calls to all donors who give to ChI to acknowledge their support (ongoing)

·  Calls to follow-up mail appeals encouraging support (twice annually – December and June)



·  Bi-Annual Mail Appeals

·  Collateral Material copy

·  Letters of Intent

·  Proposals

·  Website copy
