Services

 

C-LEVEL EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Through The Yunker Group’s executive search service, you can be assured that only highly-qualified and vetted professionals will be presented to you. Our service includes a targeted 23-step process from preparing the job description to providing media guidance in announcing the new leader. To capitalize on our fundraising and leadership development expertise, we conduct searches only for Chief Executive Officers and Chief Development Officers.

 

FRIENDRAISING AND FUNDRAISING COUNSEL

For capital and endowment campaigns, The Yunker Group offers discovery or test marketing pre-campaign planning to determine the most effective strategy and achievable goals prior to a campaign launch. The Yunker Group consultants will guide your development staff and volunteers each step of the way through planning and implementation of a campaign. Our staff provides counsel for campaign management, donor research, and writing and design of campaign materials.

 

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

An organization is only as strong as its leaders. The Yunker Group helps board members understand and accept the vital role they play in keeping your organization financially strong and programmatically sound. Call upon The Yunker Group to strengthen your leadership by providing volunteer coaching, board retreat facilitation, and leadership recruitment.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

Thorough analysis of your organizational structure, personnel, policies, and procedures by The Yunker Group’s experienced management consultants will reveal the strengths and weaknesses of your organization. A comprehensive report of our team’s findings will include actionable recommendations to help you build on your strengths and correct any weaknesses.

 

VOLUNTEER COACHING

To help your board members perform more effectively, The Yunker Group offers coaching that encourages and builds confidence. It is common for volunteers to feel uncomfortable about asking for gifts; however, with proper coaching, they can learn to approach the fundraising challenge with an optimistic outlook that achieves positive results.

 

WRITING AND GRAPHIC DESIGN

Without a compelling case for support, your organization is missing an essential fundraising tool. The Yunker Group’s writers and designers are veterans of persuasive communication who know how to present your appeal in a manner that moves donors to action. Call upon us to prepare case statements for annual, capital and endowment campaigns, as well as newsletters, brochures, video scripts and speeches.
