"Signal not Noise"
Using unrivaled fund-raising experience and applying unique business knowledge and lessons from other fields to help clients maximize donor revenues and address their interdependent challenges
A results-obsessed fund-raising company occupying the single most important niche: helping clients get the essential work done to raise dramatically more money and maximize Donor Lifetime Value
You ask: “What is our focus?” It is helping clients set aggressive goals and maximize fund-raising revenues, both in the short and long-term. Our highly specialized strategic and operational niche is directly in the bull’s eye of fund-raising—the optimization and management of in-bound revenues. We don’t do unnecessary stuff.
We provide a wide range of clients in the United States and Europe with the custom and interdependent services they need to address their complex fund-raising issues and maximize revenues.
Interdependency means that fund-raising does not take place in a silo but as part of a complex system where results are greatly affected by a number of interdependent variables including an institution's Action Logic and goals, operational processes and systems, Board strength, marketing, public relations, and the external environment.
In the management consulting business, the most strategic people are also the most practical because they focus on “what clients have to do next” to get the results they want. Because Feldsteinco has both unrivaled experience and brings to bear sophisticated business knowledge, we are able to handle and solve and simplify complex problems, connect the dots in ways that others cannot and help clients develop and implement the most winning and effective fund-raising strategies.
We are collaborators and thought partners. We provide strategy, structure and granularity. Our clients get the essential intellectual capital they will not find anywhere else.
In contrast to our competitors, we provide only the most experienced and engaged talent. In our management consulting practice, we are implementing Peter Drucker’s basic insight that “plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.”
With unique expertise, Jim Feldstein is recognized as not only one of the leading consultants in the field, but also we like to think, the person with the most distinctive and deeply experienced record. As the great Bill Parcels observed, "You are what your record says you are."
