Today, educational institutions face increasing competition for philanthropic support. Whether the challenge is to enhance an annual fund program, sustain major and planned giving efforts or undertake a campaign for facilities and endowment, every fundraising effort must succeed.

Byrne Pelofsky knows from first-hand experience that money raised by the development office is a critical part of the institution’s budget. Our consultants are sensitive to time pressures, fundraising expectations, vast and complex constituent relationships and cost-control demands of development staff. We have led large and small development teams and have partnered with both public and private educational institutions. Our knowledge and experience translate into fundraising success for your academic institution.
