GSI PHILANTHROPIC CAPACITY ASSESSMENT


How much can you really raise?

Responding to client demand, GSI has developed a methodology to project aggregate fund raising potential for a development program at any stage in its maturity. The Philanthropic Capacity AssessmentTM (PCA) integrates proprietary techniques developed and refined by GSI over many years.

The PCA involves four key components:

  • Structuring a Community Giving Profile
  • Documentation of an organization`s entire Universe of Prospects
  • Calculation of Philanthropic Potential, by source and by program over a multi-year period
  • Analysis of Key Factors essential to fund raising success

Together with a detailed overview of marketplace giving trends and demographic data, the PCA deliverable is a comprehensive written analysis with full documentation. The PCA also serves as a powerful strategic planning tool.

We know of no other methodology of this kind in the fund raising industry.

More information is available in our PCA article. Read More
