Studies, Assessments & Plans

Customized strategies that pave the way for success.

Whether you’re preparing for your next campaign, the next five years, or even next month, Cramer & Associates will develop a plan that will sustain your organization and advance your mission.

Feasibility Study

Let us work with you to refine your proposed campaign or project with feedback from your community. We’ll develop a plan to engage your board, volunteers, staff, and donors and unite them to make your campaign dreams a reality.

Corporate Philanthropy Assessment & Plan

Our corporate philanthropy assessment will lay the groundwork for a plan that aligns your company’s goals, mission, and culture with your charitable giving priorities, establishing your unique philanthropic identity. With the right approach, your for-profit business can be a powerful force for good in your community.

Pivot Plan™

Our Pivot Plan™ is designed to help your organization change directions while continuing to fulfill your mission. When an unexpected disruption hits, the Pivot Plan™ will give you the confidence and direction you need to move forward in just one week.

Strategic Plan

We will guide your organization as you set major goals for the next three+ years and develop a plan to accomplish them. Your strategic plan will be based on the insights of those who know your nonprofit best, giving you a customized map for the journey ahead.

Master Plan

Let us help you create a comprehensive vision for the next ten to twenty years that will inspire your staff, donors, and volunteers. Your master plan will be your north star, covering all aspects of your organization—programming, fundraising, social enterprise, staffing, facilities, and beyond.

Development Plan

We will craft strategies to make your fundraising efforts more powerful by assessing your organization’s structure, programs, and communications. Fundraising is the engine that propels your organization, and our development plan will help that engine run at peak efficiency to create long-term sustainability.

Integrated Marketing & Development Plan

Our team will create a plan to increase awareness of your organization and generate gifts to sustain your mission. This long-term plan will outline your goals, tactics, messages, and audiences to break down silos, aligning your communications and fundraising strategies for maximum effectiveness.
