We’re RSC. We harness the power of solid fundraising fundamentals to provide superior results.

Our goal is to coach and partner with your organization so that your fundraising program becomes stronger and more capable.

And while an evolving fundraising program that grows continually over the course of years is the ultimate goal, we’ll never ask you to be patient to see immediate results. Just the opposite, in fact, because since our beginning in 2006, RSC’s promise to your organization is Fundraising Growth Now.


Our Services


Bulletproof processes fused with smart, experienced professionals. We begin precisely where you are now, and quickly build results. Other consultants ask to be measured in years. We demand rapid results from ourselves, and expect you to as well.


Create an RSC engagement that bridges your immediate gaps. It could be a grant strategy, a feasibility study, a day-long development intensive, or on-demand coaching. You know what you need now. We meet you there.


We dig into the job description and the organizational dynamics to understand the true essence of the role, then we go to work contacting and screening candidates from a nationwide network. All for less than half of what you’d pay a traditional search firm.

“Fundraising growth is essential, and taking your time is no longer an option. In today’s environment, if your fundraising levels are in neutral, then you’re moving in reverse. Fundraising Growth Now isn’t a hope for most arts organizations — it’s a mandate.”
— Robert Swaney, Founder & CEO
