Advancement Organizational Design Review

EAB will audit your advancement shop's organizational design against best practices and provide expert recommendations for improvement.

Advancement leaders routinely contend with rising fundraising expectations, leadership turnover, and competition for top talent. Recent years have only exacerbated these challenges, all in a rapidly changing philanthropic landscape. The stakes for optimizing organizational design are higher than ever, yet actionable guidance often remains elusive.

How to use this service

Submit your shop’s org chart to EAB for review by one of our advancement experts, who will offer guidance based on best practices. Together, you’ll reassess current roles, responsibilities, and reporting structures to increase your shop’s ROI.

The Advancement Organizational Design Review focuses on three functional areas of fundraising shops:

  • Engagement

    Win constituent mindshare and establish lasting connections

  • Development

    Build relationships with donors to maximize giving

  • Advancement Services

    Complete operational tasks and drive shop strategy

Within two to four weeks from org chart submission, partners will meet with an EAB expert for a 60-minute call on organizational design best practices and strategic investments. Partners will receive tailored recommendations based on their org chart.
