Below are a few of our service offerings — contact us to learn about these and others.

Technology Assessment

Are you using the right solutions to meet your goals?

Technology is a crucial tool for your mission. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you using the right solution for the job?

  • Do you struggle to keep disparate systems in sync?

  • Is your staff using your technology to the full potential?

  • Does your technology align with your short and long term goals?

  • Has it been a while since you’ve looked at what else is out there and wonder if there are more modern, easier products out there?

  • Do you think you need an RFP, but want an expert to take a look first?

Raise HECK can help. If your answer to any of these questions was yes, we can help you find the answers. We'll take inventory of what you’re using, why you're using it, what you need it to do, and provide answers for what the best fit is for your organization. We are technology agnostic and believe the best product for one organization might not necessarily be the best for everyone else. We'll always focus on what's right for YOU.

Sustainer Checkup

Automation. Whether it's Netflix, your credit card, or other various bill payments, people are accustomed to making automated payments to manage their lives. As a nonprofit fundraiser, you need to offer donors the same convenience. To do so you must have a plan to increase your sustainer file using fundraising best practices as well as fully utilizing the tools available in your digital fundraising system.

Raise HECK will provide an assessment of your constituent-facing promotions and copy and segmentation strategies (both online and offline). We will also ensure you are aware of and leveraging the latest sustainer-focused technology available, and then help you to turbocharge your settings. Based on the outcome of these assessments, we will provide a prescriptive plan and specific recommendations for how you can grow, retain and optimize your sustainer program.

Duration: Your sustainer program is a vital piece of your fundraising program, and we know how important it is. With your active participation, we can complete this project in two weeks.

Your marketing and digital teams have so much to manage to keep programs running successfully. Staying on top of the ‘better’ practices and changes in email deliverability can feel daunting.

Raise HECK provides a deep-dive assessment designed to address specific concerns or areas for improved optimization. We’ll provide strategic guidance reviewing your metrics, segmentation strategies, and content to improve your inbox percentage rate and ultimately, engagement of your constituents. We will make sure you are equipped for long-term success in this fast-changing and important marketing channel.

Duration: Email is a vital tool to support your fundraising program and mission, and we know how important it is to make sure it’s working at peak efficiency. With your active participation, we can complete the checkup in two weeks. If you need additional consulting beyond this initial assessment, we are available to help continue to fine-tune your program.

Presentation Skills

You’re a good speaker. Get better.

Public Speaking - love it or hate it, we all have to do it at some point in our careers. Raise HECK is here to help you do it better. We’ll meet with you and your team to help you self-assess where you are in your public speaking journey, and will provide coaching and tips to help you give a better talk. Topics we’ll cover will include mastery of material, overcoming nerves, allowing your personality to shine through, and handling questions and answers with ease and aplomb.

Slides, like PowerPoint, are a ubiquitous part of public speaking in a business or professional setting. Confidence with slides is a crucial part of overall public speaking effectiveness. We’ll also spend time talking about how to create effective slides that inform, education and entertain – and most importantly, don’t bore your audience to death. Either you run your PowerPoint, or your PowerPoint runs you.

Duration: This is a 2-hour workshop that we conduct onsite at your organization or as a webinar.

Staffing Assessment and Recommendations

A people plan to match your technology
