In early 2019, Focus began a consulting project with the Center for Policing Equity, a racial justice and public safety reform organization working with communities and law enforcement to measure, address and end racism in policing. To help CPE achieve its fundraising goals, we created a development plan, conducted prospect research, planned and executed donor cultivation events, and led messaging efforts for donor materials. By the end of 2019, CPE raised $2.1M in additional support.
In mid-2020, as protests erupted after the murder of George Floyd, we worked closely with the CPE development team providing guidance and support as they raised more than $50M in funding from 23,000 new donors. In 2021, we continue advising CPE as they expand their development department and deepen their fundraising efforts.

In 2019, we conducted a campaign feasibility study for LearnServe International, an organization that equips high school students from diverse backgrounds to tackle social challenges at home and abroad. As part of the study, we conducted interviews with key stakeholders; identified potential campaign leaders and principal donors; drafted the campaign case for support; and analyzed and reported data to help LearnServe make informed decisions on its direction. We also put together a timeline and report based on the study results that helped LearnServe move forward with its plans.
