Project Overview

We are looking for a volunteer who can conduct a stakeholder research initiative for our organization, specifically to help us identify potential donors within our community.

Our organization needs a clear vision of who we trying to engage in our fundraising and partnership efforts. This project will include: gathering and analyzing information about target demographics, ideal forms of outreach, and/or what worked well or not during past outreach drives. This research could include digging into what our expected stakeholders are reading, who they’re influenced by, where they live, and demographic details. Your research could also fuel the work of building user personas: a mock-up of your organization’s ideal individual donor, corporate partner, hands-on volunteer, or foundation partner.

By synthesizing this information, you will empower our team to make better, data-backed decisions on how to progress toward our mission's goals.

We are a relatively new organization with a large capital campaign project. We are seeing a decline in grants that we qualify for, and want to diversify our income strategy. Our biggest challenge has been finding consistent donors to partner with us in our mission. We need your expertise to help us find donors within our community that will support our mission. Your work will help us finish our building project and establish a sustainability plan to ensure our work will continue for many more years. And as our organization grows, we can add more programs to better support and empower our community.

To prepare for this project, we have outlined who we believe our current core audiences are and who our aspirational audiences will be. You will have a dedicated team member to work with on this project. We plan to implement the results of this research project by utilizing the outreach strategy and contacting donors. We will use our CRM to maintain relationships with the donor pool that we have identified.
