Feasibility & Planning Studies

ADS uses feasibility studies to take the guesswork out of fundraising and allow you to make sound decisions. Our studies assist clients by providing in-depth analysis of development efforts, exploring funding priorities, and making comprehensive recommendations, positioning your organization for sustainable success.

Make informed decisions about your development program

Many organizations have good ideas; however, its those that can differentiate between good ideas and fundable ideas that experience the greatest success. One of the first steps of any successful fundraising endeavor is identifying the components of a compelling case for support. What initiatives do your members and stakeholders believe are the most valuable for them and the industry, and what initiatives are worth supporting financially? Studies provide you with answers to these questions and add clarity about perceptions of your organization and fundraising potential for the future.

From assessing your current development program to testing the feasibility of conducting a substantial fundraising initiative, ADS studies assist you with gathering prudent information to aid in effective decision-making and planning. Following the conduct of a study, ADS will provide you with actionable recommendations based on decades of fundraising experience to guide your organization’s efforts.
