At Langley Innovations, we take pride in a high degree of customization for each and every client.

We do not have a single “study process,” formula, or toolkit. We leverage extensive experience as senior advancement executives to design the optimal philanthropic path forward. We listen to practitioners, discover limiting factors, and propose proprietary solutions. We focus on annual and long-term goals; plus end-to-end organizational measures necessary for sustainable growth.

We are a full-service agency best known in the industry for our expertise in three core areas.

Organizational Health & Evaluation

Organizational health and fundraising success go hand-in-hand. We partner with you and your team to initiate a “whole shop approach” that accommodates your immediate and longer term needs. We audit and evaluate revenue patterns, data, and culture to pave a comprehensive, results-based, certain way forward.

Vital Signs Assessment
We assess four key areas to determine how your organization compares to the healthiest philanthropic cultures; this allows us to prescribe short, mid- and long-term strategies for your organization to achieve greater philanthropic fitness.

Customized assessments
Areas that impact philanthropic outcomes include:

  • Advancement operations
  • Alumni relations
  • Annual funds
  • Board relations
  • Constituent relations
  • Donor relations
  • Events
  • Gift processing/acknowledgment
  • Institutional positioning
  • Major gifts
  • Planned gifts
  • Stewardship
  • Volunteer engagement

Fundraising Strategy & Planning
