Strategic Consultancy

Our Strategic Consultancy (video) provides you with research-informed advice and expertise to help guide your funding strategies and decision-making processes.

Vision, Case and Priority Setting

We can assist you with the critical elements of envisioning the future of your organization’s mission delivery; articulating the need for support, including clear priorities for philanthropic support; and developing a Case for Support that shows prospective donors the difference they can make by supporting your prioritized needs.

“Global's coaching is affirmative and enthusiastic and the result has been an immediate impact on my day-to-day goals, practices, and donor interactions.” Shantal Cashman, CFRE, Director, Athletics, University of British Columbia

Audits & Assessments

Our Audit and Assessment services can help you generate philanthropic income by assessing your current situation and performance.  Our services range from assessing current operational performance through a Fundraising Audit and Review, to customized assessments for philanthropic naming, organizational cultural perception and stewardship.

Planning & Feasibility

For many, the issue is not whether they can raise philanthropic support, but how they can maximize it to achieve their goals and heighten their impact. We apply our knowledge of best fundraising practices and philanthropy to assess the marketplace and develop practical fundraising strategies and plans.

“They take a boutique approach to provide service to their clients - I felt that every tool that they provided us was very tailored and customized to our unique situation.” Julie Castle, Chief Advancement Officer, Humber College

Leadership & Execution

Sometimes planning and assessment and strategic counsel is not enough, and there is a need to provide you with hands-on assistance and leadership.  Global Philanthropic is able to provide you with direct assistance in your primary fundraising efforts, whether its through temporary on-site management, or professional mentoring, coaching and on-boarding, or hands-on delivery.


Global Philanthropic’s training services (video) are designed to provide those working in fundraising with the skills, knowledge and practical ideas needed to effectively raise funds in support of their organizations’ important work.

Our training programs vary from large national programs offered through our accredited National Training Academy – like the Extraordinary Donor Journey – to smaller programs tailored for individual organizations and clients.

All training programs are delivered with adult learning methodologies, and are eligible (program-by-program confirmation required) for CFRE educational credits.
