Annual Fundraising and Campaigns

The success of your organization is closely tied to your ability to build strong relationships with donors and attract ongoing contributions. We evaluate, plan and implement fundraising strategies that engage your constituencies and raise money for current operations. MMS Advancement Associates LLC has a high level of experience designing and overseeing annual campaigns in a variety of nonprofit settings including education, health and human services, senior living, arts and culture, and the environment.

Unlike many of our competitors, our fundraising consultants have years of experience working for nonprofit organizations raising annual contributions and major gifts. Our team’s varied experience allows us to meet your organization’s unique needs, such as volunteer and staff training, proposal writing and funding research.

"Not only did the Our Future Is Now Campaign help fill a fundraising gap at a critical juncture in the history of the Seminary, it laid the foundation for an even more successful year — in fact one of the most successful on record!"

Annual Fundraising and Campaigns Process

We take a comprehensive approach to annual fundraising from assessing your current program to implementation. We work side by side with you to provide a high level of service while sharing our expertise so you can continue to grow your fundraising program. During our engagement, we will:

  • Assess your current fundraising program, including your approach to donor acquisition, retention and relationship growth;
  • Review internal systems, including public relations, constituent communications, database management and donor stewardship;
  • Develop an annual fund plan, including cultivation activities, phone and mail campaigns, special events, grantsmanship, gift clubs or societies, and major gifts;
  • Guide the implementation of your annual fund plan.


Our approach to annual fundraising programs strengthens your organization and fundraising efforts now and in the future. We help you determine the best fundraising techniques that balance short-term and long-term goals, build a loyal base of annual donors and lead to leadership level gifts.
