Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston

Mission:  To inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston (BGCGH) was between CEOs and striving to maintain its fund-raising momentum while simultaneously developing thoughtful plans for the approaching fiscal year.  This advance work was critical to setting the stage for the successful transition of new leadership while carrying through on important strategic pursuits.  In close collaboration with the staff, we provided the following:

  • A comprehensive Annual Resource Development Plan identifying key areas for revenue growth and stewardship enhancements, accompanied by specific action items to better leverage Board resources, staff skills and organizational capabilities.
  • A position description for a new Resource Development staff person to focus on building and enriching relationships with local corporations.  This position stands to not only help increase corporate giving through event and program sponsorships, but also allow the Development Director to invest more time collaborating with Board Members on nurturing relationships with more high-capacity prospects.
  • A written Resource Development Committee job description, outlining the key responsibilities of volunteer Board leadership in advancing the mission of BGCGH through major gift and corporate prospect identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship.  This tool will provide more focus to meetings with Board Members and provide clearer direction to volunteer fund-raisers.
  • A complete PowerPointTM presentation outlining the Annual Resource Development Plan for consideration by the BGCGH Executive Committee.  This plan was formally approved by the Executive Committee and recommended to the Board of Director

Ongoing grant-writing services for operating and capital support.
