If you have a prospect that you are meeting for the first time, you will likely want to engage them several times before asking them for money. With a Moves Management strategy in hand, the Pitcher Group can help you develop and deliver the activities that cultivate your prospects.
A sponsorship proposal is an investment prospectus for a marketing opportunity. The Pitcher Group can help you develop proposal content about your organization and properties. In particular, our proposals typically include supplemental requests for additional opportunities beyond a base request. Again, our goal is to help you maximize your success.
Whether you need something quick and serviceable, or of professional design standard, the Pitcher can assist you with solicitation materials. We offer solutions crafted by either our fundraising consultants or our design and writing partners depending on your needs. Beyond graphical design, we focus on the functional characteristics that your materials should include to maximize your success. For example, we look at when you should and should not use projected presentations. Our functional and graphical design services include introductory leave-behinds, presentation visual aids, proposals and more.
The Pitcher Group approach is to act as one of your team members, ready to participate in any task. We will not go ask for money on your behalf without you, but nor do we expect to sit back and just give advice while you do all the work. As such, we can assist you with solicitation calls. We can participate in any stage acting as technical experts or full pitch-participants. Our goal is to make sure you have all the resources you need in a solicitation presentation.
When negotiating a large sponsorship agreement, it is important to involve your organization’s legal counsel. However, it is also important to know what issues unique to sponsorship are likely to come up during negotiations or during the life of the sponsorship term. The Pitcher can help you anticipate these issues and provide your legal counsel with recommendations from a practical perspective to complement their legal perspective.
