Annual Giving Appeal

How can you grow your year-round giving?

The annual giving emphasis of an organization supports its identity, vision and direction. At The James Company, we have helped many organizations develop plans and programs for growing faithful, joyful givers.  We think one element too often under-appreciated in funding programs is JOY.  We encourage occasions for celebration and touches of humor when appropriate.  These gifts of the heart and spirit can be valuable assets.

We believe giving is a way of life – something we do every day. We give out of gratitude – to give, to love, and to serve. Giving is a matter of the heart.

We tailor a productive year-round giving emphasis to fit your organization’s concerns, style and personality. We offer a wide range of services and resources to light the joy of giving.

The James Company will:

  • Review and analyze your past and present annual giving approach, efforts and results.
  • Develop a year-round plan and program for inviting, communicating, celebrating and giving thanks versus implementing an  annual giving appeal.
  • Provide in-depth teaching and training to grow joyful givers.
  • Design print media, videos, social media and other support resources to enhance your efforts.

Our  approach is guided by your mission, not by your annual budget. We believe people give generously when they are excited about an organization’s mission and know their gifts make a difference.
