Evolve understands the transformative power of these donations, so our philanthropy consultants work with your organization to prioritize the sourcing of mutually advantageous major and planned gifts. Identifying potential donors, coaching leadership on donor visits and requests, and developing thoughtful stewardship plans are all part of a successful strategy.

Whether you’re seeking grants for the first time or need to enhance an existing program, Evolve brings a nuanced understanding of grant opportunities in each sector to increase your success.
