Men having a meeting


We take time to understand your current situation and vision before we offer funding solutions.


Incremental and sustainable growth is possible for all development offices, even if you can’t see it. We work beside you, focusing on high impact/high return activities to tap into that hidden potential.


Each organization and donor base is unique. We combine development best practices in every area of funding, with a clear emphasis on a highly relational approach to major donor engagement. We believe your development operation should be a seamless, aligned effort to fuel the continued growth and sustainability of donor relationships.

"At the end of the day, it’s all about relationships. MAP has been tremendously beneficial in helping us develop and execute our individual donor plans, and we’ve seen tremendous results.”

Alan GrahamMobile Loaves & Fishes / Austin, TX

“Genuine, professional and extremely knowledgeable – those three words define Mission Advancement’s work. They are genuine in the interest they take in their clients; they demonstrate professionalism in all aspects of their interactions, and I have personally found their pool of knowledge to be both vast and adaptable. This team has been a tremendous asset to our organization!”

Megan SadowskiCotter Schools / Winona, MN

“Mission Advancement has changed the way that ChildFund approaches major and principal gifts. We have seen substantial growth in a short period of time and our work with MAP has exceeded our expectations.”

Steve StirlingChildFund International / Richmond, VA

"Mission Advancement’s LEAP service helped St. Patrick High School dramatically grow our annual fund through relational, major gifts fundraising. We are happy with the decision to invest in this service that will have a positive impact on our Office of Institutional Advancement for years to come."

Jeff ArditoSt. Patrick Catholic High School / Chicago, Illinois

“I appreciate the strategic direction and sound advice Mission Advancement has brought to our campaign planning. They have helped our leadership think differently about our relationships with donors and have raised sights about what is possible – and how it is possible. I am so glad we hired MAP!”

Sara JacobsonMinnehaha Academy / Minneapolis, MN

“What I appreciate most about Mission Advancement is that we feel that they are truly partners in our ministry. Schuyler and his colleagues understand our mission, care about the success of our school, and have provided us insightful, professional counsel that has blessed and will continue to bless St. Croix.”

Greg SchuylerSt. Croix Lutheran High School / St. Paul, MN

“Mission Advancement's methodology of tapping into the capacity of a relatively small number of individual donors rather than the local churches to fund our campaign has produced results we have never seen before in Indiana. We have surpassed the expectations of the feasibility study and are closing in on our victory goal, which will exceed our original need by over $3 million.”
