DRiWaterstone’s award-winning development consultants have worked side-by-side with some of the country’s most prominent non-profits to take a fresh look at long-running development departments; to quickly build major gift portfolios that can be managed by frontline fundraising staff; and to help our clients decide when and how to embark on broad-based fundraising campaigns. With decades of experience helping to build fundraising capacity at non-profits in every sector—from local museums to regional hospitals to international NGOs—we speed your learning curve and launch you on a path to new relationships, increased revenue, and greater results.
