Movement for Black Lives

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), 150+ US Black-led organizations and groups, has a mission to reshape our society to value Black lives, repair past harms, and invest in Black communities.

The Opportunity

Emerging from a period of tremendous growth, M4BL engaged the Stott Group to:

  • Build a development operations foundation to support sustained growth;
  • Provide strategic counsel and thought partnership to the newly hired Director of Resource Strategy and Development; and
  • Create sustainable fundraising solutions tailored to fit the organization’s ethos.

Strategy + Results

  • Designed fully-integrated development operations and systems and a team infrastructure, including serving as an implementation partner to onboard new team members;
  • Developed customized funder engagement strategies to ensure optimal fundraising, donor renewal and funder stewardship;
  • Created a case for support articulating M4BL’s work and impact as a tool to engage new supporters; and
  • Facilitated increased understanding of importance of resource development across stakeholders and within the organization.

The Stott Group continues to partner with M4BL leadership to develop a resource generation strategy, positioning the organization as a connective network that builds capacity, raises revenue, and strengthens systems.
