How We Work

Historically, our specialty has been and continues to be providing full-time and residential direction to fundraising appeals for non-profit institutions.

We operate on a flat weekly fee basis, agreed upon and confirmed by a contract with each client. In addition, all of our work is based on an "at-will" agreement with all clients. The client is only charged for the time that the Campaign Director is working on-site whether it meets the full term of the contract or not. Operational expenses of the campaign, such as printing, postage, campaign materials, and kick-off celebrations are under the control of the client. An estimate of these expenses will be provided by our firm prior to the beginning of the fundraising campaign. When a Client establishes a schedule and signs a contract with WD&R, our Officers select the best person available from our professional staff to serve as the Campaign Director. Campaign direction is provided only by our professional and permanent staff. Our Directors are members of the firm and are motivated to serve our clients well.Read More
