The objective of every NCDS feasibility analysis is to assess the community's level of support for your proposed program or project, and to position you for fundraising success. We consider the Feasibility Study as the most critical component of any fundraising effort.
Our longevity, reputation, and loyal client base demand that we tell the truth and that our recommendations reflect the best interests of the client and the community.
If the feasibility study supports a "go" recommendation for a campaign, we will pinpoint an appropriately aggressive goal, suggest fundraising strategies, and specify critical success factors such as program & organizational refinement, volunteer leaders, and campaign messaging.
If our findings yield a "no go," or "not now" recommendation, NCDS provides a detailed path to "campaign readiness" that will inform the client's pursuit of increased relevance and asking rights.

"The WDC's successful $3.5 million capital campaign under the leadership of NCDS marks the beginning of a new stage of advancement for our organization. The team effort - from developing our economic development blueprint to the GROW Watertown 5-Year Strategic Plan - laid the groundwork. And now area business leaders have shown their confidence by rallying behind the WDC so it can help implement our 5-year strategic plan for growth. The WDC is already having a meaningful impact on business development efforts in our area as companies are no longer viewing their contributions as a donation, but an opportunity to be part of building a stronger and growing community."
