Partnering with Orr Group, NTC aimed to diversify its funding sources and maximize philanthropic impact. Orr Group conducted a thorough assessment of NTC’s fundraising infrastructure and leadership capabilities, crafted a compelling support case, and devised a roadmap for revenue growth. Our final recommendations included aligning leadership and Board members around a simplified, impactful mission and vision; revamping the development department for efficiency; deepening engagement in core revenue areas; and introducing individual and corporate giving. Further, to ensure that NTC could be strategic in achieving this new growth, Orr Group recommended implementing Salesforce by serving as NTC’s Data Manager to drive moves management and create a stronger culture data-driven decision making within the organization.
