Assessment and Planning Pathway to Success

UnityPoint Health Foundation


The UnityPoint Health Foundation has been committed to generating resources for the sustainability and advancement of healthcare in Des Moines and the surrounding communities since 1980.


The health system foundation needed an assessment of their fundraising operation and recommendations for improvement, especially for their annual giving program.


The consultants of Copley Raff undertook an extensive evaluation of the operation and fundraising methods and strategies and provided a report with discovery, financial modeling and recommendations. Copley Raff, through its Rising Tide Direct affiliate, continues to provide direct mail strategy, creative and execution services.


• From the period of Copley Raff’s engagement in early 2013 through FY 2015, Foundation annual revenues grew 40% while keeping costs within industry expense benchmarks
