We create transformational fundraising campaigns.
We share our clients' vision – to make the world a better place.
We are a professional fundraising consultancy delivering capital and comprehensive campaigns, philanthropic strategy development, and major donor and bequest programs.
What we do
The trends in today’s world of philanthropy point to a rise in the importance of major donors and large donations over ‘traditional retail’ fundraising.
While the overall number of donors and donations is shrinking, the size of top-level gifts or donations is increasing.

The DGB Process
DGB undertakes a 5-phase campaign methodology.
Each stage in the process is crucial to ensuring the success of a transformational fundraising campaign.
& Bequest Programs
Major Donor and Bequest Programs formalise and focus ongoing stewardship and solicitation of major donors into a club whereby membership is renewed via an annual ‘untied’ gift.
It is not uncommon for some for-purpose organisations that have grown from small beginnings into large non-government organisations to have little-to-no philanthropic support and to lack a robust fundraising strategy.
Based on world’s best practice, DGB delivers philanthropic strategy development for organisations using the Total Development Fundraising Plan model, a framework that integrates all forms of fundraising into a practical and sustainable philanthropic roadmap.
In addition to funding buildings and other physical infrastructure, Comprehensive Campaigns can also include research, operational costs, education, sustainability and other mission-aligned needs in one single campaign.
Comprehensive Campaigns are reserved for achieving the largest revenue targets of any fundraising methodology and DGB are experts in delivering on that transformational promise.
