Scale

Fund-raising 5.0 uses advanced ideas and strategic knowledge beyond the static methods of earlier eras. It has become clear that fund-raising success is largely explained by the interplay of just 7 things. Laser-like focus on these 9 things has an enormous impact on future success and progress. Growth is remarkably sensitive to the 9 factors in the Feldstein Scale:

  • Board composition, leadership, generosity, level of consciousness and engagement

  • CEO Leadership and absence of visible and invisible liabilities and barriers to progress within an institution’s culture – their Action Logic

  • Institutional aspirations, mission, and positioning of the brand

  • Size of lead gifts and robustness of high probability donors/prospects

  • Power of fund-raising strategy and thinking

  • Having the right donor products priced appropriately

  • Recipe,  content, processes and technology to engage strategic donors

  • Mindset that anything is possible and all problems are solvable

  • Focus on maximizing Donor Lifetime Value (DLV)
