California State University, Sacramento
As California’s capital university, Sacramento State holds a special place in the educational landscape of the state. Recognizing that attribute as Sac State’s partner, Phoenix Philanthropy drew upon its well-honed insights and data to handle many diverse responsibilities during our multi-year consulting relationship. Going above and beyond the scope of work, we started with initial campaign preparation and planning, including readiness assessment and a market positioning study, and moved to campaign counsel for the $200 million On the Rise campaign. Our work has included major, planned, and annual giving; messaging, communications, and marketing for diverse constituencies; best practices and recommendations to grow and strengthen alumni relations, annual giving programs, and donor pipeline; and volunteer leadership development and related training. Well into the campaign, Sac State is poised to surpass its goal.
…There are many ingredients to campaign success. At Sacramento State, one of the key ingredients is The Phoenix Philanthropy Group. When we celebrate victory in a few years, they will have been with us from start to finish.
