Case Summary

Established arts organization wins major corporate sponsor – after years of trying.

After several years of cultivating a major national corporation, a large urban arts organization, with the engagement of principals from VEGA Partners, finally nailed the core issue that was cause for the company’s hesitation on a sponsorship agreement. Diplomacy, timing and integrity were essential in guiding the nonprofit to try a new approach, and refreshing the corporation’s perspective of the arts organization.

The results: Six-figure sponsorship and multi-year partnership.


Human service organization with new Executive Director must fundraise for the first time – with the same, longstanding Board.

Six months into her new tenure, the Executive Director succeeding the organization’s founder is challenged with inspiring the Board of Directors to raise new funds and reinvigorate employee engagement. VEGA Partners provided highly individualized and confidential counsel to the Executive Director and key Board members to institute new fundraising efforts, lay the groundwork for building a culture of fundraising and renew employee excitement.

The results: Fundraising efforts that exceeded results with both Board and employee enthusiasm trending high and eagerness for “what’s next”.
