MULTI-Search Services

With our Multi-Search Services, you can expand your fundraising team – at scale and efficiently and strategically.

If you are looking to capitalize on opportunities associated with the enhancement of day-to-day fundraising activities or the launch and implementation of a major campaign, you will want to consider the hiring of multiple professionals – either all at once, in phases, or sequentially. With our multi-search services, you will be able to recruit talented new team members who understand your unique characteristics and culture and hold deep knowledge of fundraising trends and best practices.

As our client, you will build a team that functions effectively on the individual- and department-level, and that spans the functions and skillsets you need. We approach multi-search projects with the same discipline and creativity we bring to all our search engagements. By collaborating closely with your internal human resource and talent managers, we will establish a viable plan that yields a positive outcome for your organization in a timely manner.

Development Guild has been our trusted partner for well over 20 years. We have worked together on two successful fundraising campaigns – and are now launching our third, and most ambitious, campaign together. We have also partnered on numerous searches for C-suite and fundraising staff. Their understanding of our culture, deep marketplace knowledge and access to top candidates has resulted in new staff who have an impact on day-one. Much like Pine Street, Development Guild strives for excellence.

At the start of the partnership, Year Up’s development team consisted of 30 staff, was raising $20M annually and was in the midst of a $55M campaign. Since then, we have completed 10+ development searches for Year Up. Today, the development team consists of around 70 staff, raises $80M annually and recently closed a $240M capital campaign. Furthermore, Year Up now serves young adults in 28 locations across the country, 22 more than when we started our partnership.

We have recruited 50+ team members for the Boston Children’s Hospital Trust, ranging from fundraising leadership positions to senior major, principal, and corporate/foundation officers, along with a number of key operations roles. When we began our partnership, the development team had about 30 staff members and the Trust was preparing to launch a $200M capital campaign. Today, Children’s Hospital Trust employs over 130 development staff and its current campaign, Dream Dare Deliver, is anticipated to raise $1.3B. It is the largest children’s hospital campaign in the country.

I have retained Development Guild to recruit key staff positions for successful campaigns at three different academic medical institutions. For each engagement, we could count on their understanding of complex systems, creativity, ability to accurately assess candidates, and unwavering commitment to successful outcomes.
