What We Do
At each station
At project launch, Results Group consultants will hold a day-long working meeting and
planning session at each station. Visits will be scheduled at the convenience of the
station. The visit should include the following elements:
Tour of the facility with brief overview of programming content.
One Results Group consultant will return to each station about three months into the
project and again about eight months in for intensive training of the Project Team.
Group meeting with all executive and development members of the Project Team.
Meeting with full Project Team, including board members, possibly over lunch.
Meeting with the Project Team Leader and other fundraising staff to discuss workplan
Final wrap-up session with staff members of the Project Team.
Joint training and planning sessions
Each stationís Project Team Leader (a member of the development staff) is required to
participate in a full day "kick off" planning workshop produced especially
for the Major Gift Initiative stations. Other staff Team members, especially general
managers, are invited and encouraged to take advantage of this training opportunity.
The workshop provides a unique opportunity to meet project peers and to interact with
participating Project Teams from other stations.
Every month, Project Team Leaders will have one-hour working phone meetings with
project consultants. Preparation for these working meetings will be required. The
focus of these meetings will be to review steps taken in the past month and to
outline strategies for the month ahead.
There will be two telephone conference calls with staff from all of the participating
stations during the project. These calls will be tightly organized around common
themes and emerging challenges of the project.
