Neighborhood revitalization in Birmingham, Alabama at its finest.

Monday, January 30, 2017

Revitalizing a neighborhood provides more than fresh paint and lifted spirits. It creates new jobs, better education for children and safer streets for everyone.

The Woodlawn Foundation has raised 7 million for the Birmingham area to build a “Purpose Built Community” to renovate schools, provide housing and raise families out of poverty. The nonprofit also created the Woodlawn Innovation Network to work with the high schools to guarantee children graduate. See

This renewed community used services from National Community Development Services (NCDS) to create the fundraising campaign that supports this valuable set of programs. Learn more at

“NCDS has been our fundraising firm of choice since they first helped us devise the Forward Sioux Falls operating model in 1987, and raised $1.8 million to implement it.  Not only is the firm exceptionally skilled at raising money, they also understand the importance of generating buy-in and sustained commitment.  NCDS has helped us exceed goal in seven campaigns, the latest of which has a $15.5 million target, and when the current campaign is completed, NCDS will have helped us raise $53 million to fund our initiatives.  Our top community leaders expect the best from our organization, and the exceptional team at NCDS always works hard to help us exceed those expectations.”
