Bridging the Gap between Development Directors

Maintaining momentum while in the process of filling an executive position is critical to success. One client benefited from m+r interim solutions when they needed to launch their annual campaign, while they were in the process of finding a new director of development. The affiliate contractor stepped in at a critical time and became a temporary, part-time team member, working to support volunteers and staff by preparing them for solicitation calls, providing materials and information, and managing deadlines. The organization was able to devote time to finding the right director of development, knowing their annual fund campaign was in capable hands.

Adding a Temporary Boost to Current Operations

Sometimes, an organization needs assistance with more than one task. During a time when a client was evaluating its development staffing needs, m+r interim solutions arranged coverage for communications and fundraising to keep the nonprofit’s operations going. Two affiliate contractors teamed up to implement the year-end development plan, distribute all mailings and the annual report, make sure that gifts were recorded and acknowledged properly, and assist with an annual event. The affiliate contractors also worked to strengthen the client’s key donors and communications/ marketing program and coordinated fundraising volunteers during a very busy time of year.  The client benefited from expertise provided by our affiliate contractors and was able to make the right decisions about staff needs for the future.

Managing a Milestone Event

When a Triangle agency contacted m+r interim solutions for assistance planning an event in recognition of a major milestone, we were able to put the perfect professional in place. During the affiliate contractor’s time with the organization, she handled volunteer coordination, leadership recruitment, and other logistics, and worked with a committee to identify sources of sponsorship gifts. The affiliate contractor provided assistance and expertise every step of the way, and was there to help celebrate a huge success. In the end, this event helped raise the organization’s profile in the community, and provided an excellent opportunity to cultivate and steward supporters.
