Funding Roadmapping / Donor Mapping:
Funding opportunities are vast, requirements are complicated, and breaking goals down into steps for achievement is daunting. Catalystas can create step by step plans, or roadmaps, that will work backwards from your organization's ultimate funding goals and needs, and detail the concrete steps that will enable a successful fundraising process. We build diverse funding options into our roadmaps, with steps and strategies designed to maximize success and find the best matches between organizational and donor goals, conditions, needs, and missions.
In order to determine the best fit when it comes to donors, Catalystas conducts extensive research to create a donor map - a spreadsheet of donors matching your organizational needs. Our donor maps take into consideration project and program budgets and scope, timelines, core funding needs, ultimate goals, proposal requirements, thematic and geographic focuses, accessibility, reporting and M&E requirements, partnerships, and more in order to build a tailored and ranked map of potential funding opportunities for your organization to pursue.
