that naturally extend and synergistically enhance the communication of an organization's case and
mission. Those enhanced communications result in fostering and managing an increased financial
bottom line for those organizations. Along with its affiliated business partners, FriendRaisers
brings years of successful experience and services to help organizations create strong business
plans, assemble boards of directors and author strategic marketing plans. This ultimately grows
programs, businesses and financial development programs that increase contributions enabling
organizations to more efficiently and completely fulfill their missions to the community.
