SERVICE

Learning & Leadership Development

← BACK TO SERVICES

We provide advice, tools, and curriculum that help non-profit leaders to better focus their fundraising roles and organization structure, while elevating their missions.

Leadership Advisory Services

Drawing on our decades of experience, we provide one-on-one consultation to non-profit leaders, advising them on everything from campaign planning, to recruitment of key leadership, to major gift strategies.

Board Development

Our interactive board development programs increase knowledge, build support for fundraising, and, most importantly, strengthen an organization’s culture of philanthropy. We train board members and trustees through seminars, role playing, and customized board retreats.

Custom Learning

We are proud to offer a dynamic forum for learning best practices in fundraising and CCS’s proven methodology. Throughout the years, we have worked with a wide range of organizations, tailoring courses to meet their specific challenges and knowledge requirements.
