Capacity Building Strategy


Capacity-Building Strategy for Nonprofits

Rather than chasing dollars, Davidoff’s perspective on resource development for nonprofits is to fully leverage the power and influence of their assets. Davidoff’s Asset Inventory helps uncover an organization’s tangible and intangible assets, many of which it may not be currently aware.

Davidoff encourages our nonprofit clients to see themselves as leaders and champions of a cause and to leave their “tin cups” at home. We work to position our clients as subject matter experts providing corporate partners, foundation funders and donors with valuable solutions to meet bottom-line, mission-aligned business objectives as well as impact the hearts and minds of their employees.

Davidoff’s Mission-Driven perspective on partnerships

With nonprofit organizations, our goal is to create true strategic partnerships with organizations that have direct interest and benefit in supporting their nonprofit partner’s mission and are invested in the issues and goals the nonprofit is pursuing. Davidoff’s Asset Inventory helps uncover an organization’s tangible and intangible assets.

Davidoff leads client organizations to shift their perspectives from selling sponsorships to growing partnerships.


Over the past 13 years, Davidoff has had the opportunity to apply its Mission-Driven capacity building approach on behalf of many national nonprofit organizations, philanthropic foundations, and professional associations including:

  • Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup
  • National Children’s Museum
  • Chicago Jazz Philharmonic
