LAPA is all about your fundraising advancement.
THE LAPA STORY
LAPA seeks to positively change the way nonprofit executives and their boards think about fundraising. We provide the models, the tools, and the expertise to empower our clients to significantly increase their revenues. We help nonprofit leaders embrace development as a challenge that inspires, rather than something to avoid. We take nonprofit organizations to the next level of quality, and, once successful, our clients achieve exceptional results in increased revenue and a greater ongoing development capacity.
You will know our values by what we do. These six touch points define our team values.
Practice Emotional Intelligence in Relationships
Honesty, openness, and frequent communication are central to the success of LAPA’s work. We honor what we say we are going to do and ensure that you are informed and supportive of our decisions and proposed actions.
Social Justice Activists
Nonprofits are key to the creation of civil society and are unified in seeking social justice. Fundraisers, by extension, must be committed to that underlying desire to create a more just and equitable world.
LAPA seeks a new dimension on performance. Their practical approach is the intervening variable for change and the systems that support it.
Value Deep, Sustained Partnerships
LAPA seeks to be seen by our clients as an indispensable extension of their staff and board. LAPA volunteers for and sponsors galas and events, modeling the philanthropy role that we ask of others.
LAPA customizes our approach to fit your needs. Instead of running you through the same fundraising industry routines, we listen deeply to your past experience and future aspirations and customize a scope of service to fit the culture of your organization. If warranted, LAPA modifies the scope of service along the way.
Code of Ethics
As longtime members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the Grants Professional Association, and the American Prospect Research Association, LAPA strictly follows and adopts their code of ethics as our own, including the Donor Bill of Rights.
