Call Alex if Your Organization:
Struggles to raise the resources it needs to deliver on its mission and implement its programs or solutions on the scale they deserve to be.
Hesitates to ask potential donors for what they need most.
Has too few people who want to fund-raise because they find it difficult or distasteful and those who do are not well trained or coordinated.
Is leaving value on the table in its dealings with foundations, corporations and major gift prospects.
Spends too little effort on those with the greatest potential to give but who are challenging to work with.
Alex can help your organization address fund-raising challenges holistically, sensitively, and in some cases, relatively quickly. He built Grameen Foundation from a fledgling organization given a $6,000 seed grant in 1997 to a global humanitarian organization with $25 million in revenue in 2009. At American India Foundation, he increased revenue by 25% by his second year after it has been stagnating for nearly a decade.
He achieves results by applying and adapting proven major gift fund-raising techniques and by building and managing great teams. Through training and coaching he helps organizations rack up quick wins while optimizing long-term revenue. Clients even come to enjoy the fund-raising process.
“After observing Alex’s effectiveness in facilitating meetings among leaders of India-focused philanthropies, Arogya retained him to lead our first-ever board retreat in India. He did a terrific job. Our knowledge of best practices in fund-raising and board development grew substantially through trainings he delivered. We are now forging ahead with confidence, to make the public health impact we know we can.”
