Client Services

MCL Consulting provides experienced fundraising counsel to non-profit organizations that need assistance in enhancing their development programs. We work in partnership with our clients in a practical, cost-effective manner.

All projects are directed by Mary C. Lizzul, who has over twenty-give years of successful development management and implementation experience. As needed, we work with strategic partners to help provide clients with a full range of fundraising services tailored to meet an organization's unique goals and challenges.


  • Conduct development assessments to help determine the strengths and weaknesses of your organization and how you should structure your development or advancement programs.
  • Provide program evaluation and strategic planning for your overall fundraising program – including annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, foundation and corporate relations, and special events.
  • Provide short-term on-site development or campaign counsel to help you during staff transitions or during campaigns.
  • Conduct campaign feasibility or planning studies, which include a unique collaboration with Jan Grieff Research Associates to help identify your top potential major donors for the campaign.
  • Plan and implement multi-year campaigns or special fundraising initiatives.
  • Train staff, Board members and volunteers on how to identify, cultivate and solicit potential donors.
  • Craft development materials including case statements, annual reports, and letters. (We typically refer you to associates to produce those materials.)
  • Provide foundation research and proposal writing.
  • Provide strategic fundraising counsel on a periodic or interim basis.

We follow the professional and ethical standards of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the Council for the Advancement & Support of Education and the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning.
