Nonprofits concentrate on two things: their mission and funding their mission. Nonprofits need metrics-based processes that accurately prove their effectiveness. Simultaneously, they must be skilled storytellers in order to spur interest in their mission. The art and science of asking for and raising funds can be difficult to master—Innovo can help.
Innovo provides ongoing services to a nonprofit located in the greater Boston area. Innovo provided strategic planning, structure for financial accountability, conducted fundraising, gave stakeholder presentations, and designed publications. Innovo drove the client’s organizational transformation that resulted in a operational budget increase from $750K to $3.2M annually. Innovo’s efforts also led to the staffing of the executive director and a program coordinator, the creation of two programs—one of which incorporates services from a globally recognized technology company, and the successful launch of a $12M capital campaign.
Innovo provided strategic and analytical support to a leadership and personal development-focused charitable organization. Innovo developed donor engagement strategies, conducted data analytics, and executed a fundraising campaign.
Innovo provides actual experience in the unique field of college admissions and post-secondary school accessions. Countless organizations provide college recruitment services. However, colleges increasingly need to ensure their student profile input from high school is precisely composed to meet their strategic needs. They demand programmatic pipelines that attract the types of students they seek. Innovo’s services include the development of these pipelines and the actual execution of flagship programs that anchor organizational strategies.
Innovo led the reorganization of the Office of Admissions at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA). A workforce assessment and re-alignment of specific roles and functions resulted in a more effective organization. In another initiative, Innovo assisted the implementation of a new Admissions Information System (AIS). Innovo provided a system analysis, long-term enterprise strategy, and communication between the client and stakeholders. USNA maintains a competitive advantage over other service academies and top-ranked colleges and universities.
Innovo provided investigative support for a risk management firm that maintains domestic and international clients ranging from higher education institutions to global sports conglomerates. Innovo continues to provide business and change management expertise as it seeks to guide high profile institutions through the process of restoring credibility after major scandals.
Within government, leaders have the increasingly difficult job of accomplishing their mission in the midst of declining resources. They are required to meet their bottom line, but must do so efficiently. To demonstrate fiscal responsibility, they must ensure their mission is clearly defined, their operations are aligned, and that they have captured the metrics required to maintain funding or request more.
Innovo developed and proposed a strategic initiative for a government agency to prepare and attract top performing high school students from across the nation. Innovo formulated a one-week program that engaged students in leadership, team building, ethics, and community service. The proposal outlined key components of the program, provided a sample schedule of events, estimated the resources required to execute the program, and assessed the return on investment expected in the agency’s broader recruiting efforts. Innovo interfaced with a commanding general and helped equip the agency with successful marketing capabilities.
