The above list of diverse services demonstrates the depth and breadth of services APG provides to its clients. Beyond this, however, the list also illustrates how we are clearly “separate from the pack” of other consulting firms. We do not simply conduct studies utilizing formulaic methodologies. Rather, the principals of our firm, as well as our senior staff, have been there, done that in all aspects of fundraising and capital campaigns. We’ve written the case statements; we’ve assessed the donor community; we’ve developed the fundraising plan; and, most importantly, we’ve reached the goal by actually raising the millions of dollars needed for the capital project…the endowment fund…the educational program.
