Part of the homework that we do as professional funding strategists is related to early cooperation with architects and builders. I try to familiarize myself with the various firms doing business here in the Midwest. Most architects and builders do not want to design facilities that turn out to be beyond the financial reach of their clients. However, we have seen evidence of this several times this past year.
Many churches and non-profits fail to take the important step analyzing their desired project as well as the sum of their funding capacity. That’s where we can help. Call Bountiful Harvest Consulting for a free Goal Alignment Analysis
, or complete the online form
found on our website. Then, Bountiful Harvest can recommend a lender who will tell you how much you can borrow if that is your intention. At this point, you should be able to accurately project the total cost of your project.
Our word of caution pertains to those several general contractors who want to be a one-stop shop from design to construction to fundraising strategies. It’s hard to be an expert in every field, but even if such is the case, the client is still left without any “checks and balances” on the amount of the funding goal and the total size of the project. Our best advice is take advantage of Bountiful Harvest’s free funding analysis
