In partnership with a national network of philanthropists, New Profit provides unrestricted growth capital and strategic expertise to a portfolio of breakthrough social entrepreneurs. In addition to providing direct support to this portfolio of organizations, New Profit strengthens the ecosystem that exists around social entrepreneurs to help them thrive and achieve greater impact. New Profit came to Orr Group as it prepared to launch a campaign to celebrate its 20th anniversary. In addition to celebrating New Profit’s impact and charting its leadership vision, the campaign was intended to create a strong financial foundation for the organization’s next 20 years.
Orr Group was retained to conduct an assessment and develop a strategic road map to guide New Profit’s leadership as it embarked on the campaign. Following on from that work, we are now engaged in actively preparing for the campaign: identifying and prioritizing prospects, recruiting top volunteer leadership, refining the case for support, and assembling leadership and major gift prospects.
Thus far, we have identified and qualified over 200 prospects, with a potential gift value of more than twice the campaign goal, designed the campaign’s leadership structures, roles and responsibilities, developed strategies for lead gift solicitation, and are providing counsel on staff structure and internal processes. Early solicitations are going well and the largest gift from an individual in the organization’s history was recently secured.
