Raising the roof, together…

$3 to $5 return in new dollars raised after one year.
Impact Services for Impact Results
Execute your charitable vision without distraction. Leave the gritty stuff to us.
What is your collateral like? Does it inspire donors? Do you get more unsubscribes than new monthly donors?
Our communications team will analyze and assess your organization’s collateral and make strong recommendations based on your organizational needs and strategic objectives.
branding, marketing, & communications
There’s project management and then there’s creative direction. We provide branding for new start-ups—from logos to letterhead, websites to marketing collateral. We operate a full-service branding, marketing, and communications department with expert graphic artists, web designers, videographers, and copywriters. We provide comprehensive communications plans for your individual organization and situation.
We are adept across all fundraising platforms, channels, and methods, including engaging monthly donor programs, new-donor acquisition, direct mail campaigns, foundation applications, grant writing, boutique and gala events, and more. Our goal is to help your organization achieve a level of predictable, expected revenue, so that you can focus on your vision for others.
Organizational development and staffing
Your charitable work for others hinges on how effectively you run your own organization—it’s hard to help others when your house is a mess. We support your team by improving systems, structures, and skills, while adding innovations and adding temporary staff (including leadership roles), so that your team operates as just that—a team that functions happily as one.
Governance guidance and strategic planning
It’s all about you and your board. Without a strong, supportive, and professional board of directors, your own efforts for others will be impaired. We provide an array of governance services, including board-member vetting and recruitment, process improvements, and executive coaching for tough boards. Trust us, your board is your friend.
What you achieve tomorrow is dictated by what you do today. What’s your five-year plan? We help you become better in the moment through strategic planning that provides confidence in the future.
“GM&F Partners is playing a crucial role helping Life Issues Institute get to the next level with fundraising. They are also great people to work with and very responsive to customizing materials for our specific mission. I’m happy to recommend them for your fundraising efforts.”
“George Glover and the GM&F team were very professional in the service they provided to our organization and often went the extra mile to help us. Their attention to detail was impressive and I would recommend them without reservation.”
“George and his team are a delight to work with. Their enthusiasm and dedication are the intangibles that filter through to every level of our organization. The sophistication and impact of our fundraising efforts have improved and we are seeing the results. They are a valued partner.”
“GM&F Partners was instrumental in seeing us through the early days of our development. Collaborating with us, they brought clarity and direction to our organization. Their knowledge, experience, and connections within the non-profit world were important pieces to helping us build a firm foundation for the future. Thank you, GM&F!”
“The GM&F Partners team brought about a quantum leap in our ability to reach our members and donors and, above all, get the message of LIFE out to our province. We were losing ground with aging donors and supporters, ineffective engagement methods, and poor internal and Board structure. All these good changes would not have been possible without GM&F’s help. We are most grateful and eminently satisfied with the great expertise provided.”
