What We Do

Simply stated, we secure the financial resources that community and economic development organizations need to fulfill their missions, increase impact and value, and make their communities better places to live, work, and start or grow businesses. 


what we doBold, aggressive, and innovative plans that go beyond business as usual or “maintenance” programming require infusions of capital, as well as commitment and support from key leaders and stakeholders.  Our process ensures that these kinds of plans and projects are fully funded, so that they can be fully executed.

When membership dues and other sources of operating support cannot fund these critical programs and projects, and when “token” pledges from your usual supporters won’t move the needle far enough, NCDS can help.  We specialize in managing campaigns that bring ideas, vision, and strategic plans to life.  We excel at gaining buy-in and ownership of your program or project by those with the requisite capacity to lead, influence, and invest; and at positioning your organization for maximum support from a broad constituency of sources.

"On behalf of the officers and directors of the Economic Development Alliance, I want to thank you and your staff for the great job NCDS did in helping restructure the Alliance, and for successful management of the fundraising campaign that fully funded our five-year action plan. The NCDS process and format delivered exactly what you said it would do when you met with Alliance members over eighteen months ago. The NCDS process engaged top regional private and public sector leaders and attracted financial support from large and small companies and communities throughout the region."
