We Bring You
We have a passion for philanthropy – the art of giving and asking for gifts. We’ve been along to see individual lives changed for the better, institutions and congregations strengthened, communities healed and society made better.
Our passion is also to help people like you – leaders and workers – develop this same passion for raising funds for the worthy causes of the world. We approach our work as your guide on your journey with a passion that’s contagious.
We understand the urgent unmet human need which your organization seeks to address: food, clothing, shelter, health, education, spiritual development, artistic expression, natural disasters, counsel and comfort, poverty, crisis, mentoring, and others.
We understand how urgently you need funds to carry out your work, to do what you can to meet these human needs.
This sense of urgency is ever present in us as we work with you to build development programs that will grow and live on, gaining momentum and dollars to hasten you on your journey of responding to people’s needs.
As we journey together your mission becomes our mission.
Your mission –the cause which brought your organization into being – becomes paramount for us too. We do everything we can to make you stronger, more effective, more productive, more flexible, and more equipped to reach your mission destination.
Together we join in another mission, a very personal mission… it’s to help people become more generous.
This common mission empowers individuals to become more aware of the human needs in their communities, country and world… to be sensitive to neighbors who need help… to become involved with causes that bind us together as a country and lift our spirits.
Together we guide people to discover the joy of giving and the joy of asking for gifts.
- Ethical: Put the client first. Become teachers, friends and partners in mission.
- Professional: Listen. Then build productive and sustainable solutions.
- Customized: Build fundraising capacity. Create cultures of generosity.
- Results-Oriented: Develop pathways to client growth.
Lead The Way
When you travel with GSB, you never walk alone.
Talented partners and associates comprise the GSB Team – experts who can be drawn upon at a moment’s notice. It’s reassurance that your journey, no matter the bumps along the way, will be successful. You will reach your destination.
Though the firm works with all types and sizes of charitable groups and congregations, the small institution in the early stages of building its fundraising program has been our particular specialty. GSB also specializes in general development consulting, assisting the client whenever it needs assistance and direction, rather than solely directing terminal campaigns.
How Much Do Services Cost?
Services really cost nothing because competent direction and assistance results in a program which returns many times the initial investment.
Gronlund Sayther Brunkow works on a set fee, never on a percentage of funds raised or on a commission. Contracts are written for one or two years and are cancelable after sixty days. Payments are due in equal monthly amounts. Contracts may be as low as $250 or $350 per month.
We have directed many successful capital campaigns at a total cost for fee and all expenses of five percent or less.
Does GSB Have A Set Program It Offers?
No. Each program and campaign is designed to meet the specific needs and circumstances of the client. As a client, you receive custom services and attention. Our goal is always to provide competent, professional service to help you build a productive and continuing development program.
