Philanthropy fuels vision. We power philanthropy.

We know philanthropy is one of the most powerful drivers of mission – a way to create change, raise the bar, and sustain programs with extraordinary impact on society. At Development Guild DDI, we engage with leaders to find the synergy between vision, philanthropic opportunity, and the talent and practice of fundraising.

We begin with questions.

  • What are you trying to achieve and why?
  • How will philanthropy make a critical difference?
  • How many dollars do you need?
  • Do you believe you have the opportunity to get there?
  • Do you have the talent and resources to get there?

Your answers shape our work. Together, we will identify and address the conditions necessary to get to the optimal philanthropic position, to guide your investment in fundraising, and build the right model and practice for you.

To each of our clients, we bring a team with best practice models of fundraising, relevant new ideas, firsthand experience, and a fresh perspective. We also bring our strategic framework and the unique intersection and experience of our fundraising and executive search services. Our relationships with executive leaders, chief development officers, and Board members further inform our knowledge around what opportunities and tactics create the strongest, most sustainable philanthropic practice. We learn every day and we apply that learning to you.
