Custom Development Solutions, Inc recently served Gateway Clubhouse, a nonprofit company that assists those with mental illness by offering education, housing, and job placement. CDS provided Gateway Clubhouse with the following services:
- Fundraising Council
- Campaign Feasibility Study
- Planning Study
The studies consisted of many aspects to assess the most effective way to conduct the fundraiser. One example is of a series of personal interviews that reveal an achievable fundraising goal. After CDS interviewed just under 100 individuals, they concluded the fundraising goal should be between two and a half and three million dollars. Over the following ten months, CDS stood beside Gateway, assisting them in every aspect of their fundraiser, which allowed for a highly successful and profitable period. At the end of the ten month period, a total of four million dollars was raised, exceeding the goal by over one million.
