Financial Resource Development Consultation
The findings from the summer 2010 survey on the state of JCC financial resource development demonstrated that JCCs were into fundraising in a big way. More than half of the JCCs surveyed had a dedicated development director, and among other FRD professionals, 62 percent were added to JCC staff in the last five years.
Through JCCA.me, we offer JCCs guidelines for the development of an overall fundraising plan, and a guide to developing an annual appeal. JCCA.me also contains an inventory of year-end and annual appeal materials, naming guidelines, legacy and planned giving campaigns, giving circles, staff campaigns, and board minimum gifts. If a JCC is contemplating a capital campaign, we have comparative information to share. FRD professionals make active use of a dedicated FRD Listserv, and come together every two years for cohort learning at the JCC Association Professional Conference. Additional FRD services are in the development phase.
