*Preferred but not required

RD GPS runs for a minimum of 6 months. In order to be eligible for add-on services (grant writing, narrative support, etc.), RD GPS is the pre-requisite. The majority of our clients stay with us for many years, others move on once they have reached the point of success where they feel comfortable hiring someone in-house. If there comes a time where you prefer to hire someone on staff, we would be happy to help to accelerate your growth in conjunction with your in-house hire.

We measure success by your organization's return-on-investment (ROI) with One Degree Impact.  The key to ROI success is based on the strength of your relationships/ the number of funding opportunities. We find that the stronger the funder relationship regardless of revenue type, the greater the ROI.  

The first three (3) months we will hold bi-weekly virtual sessions for 90 minutes. In between each session you can expect 1-2 hours of action-taking 🙂 The following six (6) months, we will hold accountability calls, as-needed, and have office hours for RD GPS tool integration. Ideally, we work as part of your organization’s development team, where marketing plans are in place to streamline your message and how you present yourselves to the world in addition to RD GPS tool integration. This ensures that we stay consistent within your brand identity and how we communicate your programming across the board. Our clients should prepare to commit anywhere from 2-4 hours a week throughout the 6 month period. 

One Degree Impact integrates our expertise and is a valuable resource for your development team’s efforts. Our new Resource Development GPS tool has a custom-built curriculum which is catered to the specific needs and bandwidth of our clients. Our team has the capacity to work quickly based on the needs of your org, but we also maintain clear deadlines and require that clients keep the lines of communication open.

We both do! We use our proprietary, tech-enhanced tools and systems to manage projects for clients - from warehousing documents, fundraising project tracking and future project planning. 

Don't miss out on funding opportunities!

You don’t have to be distracted from changing the world simply because you don’t have the time or resources. We have worked with hundreds of nonprofit leaders over the past two decades to develop a successful resource development program. Let us help you!
