Advancement Solutions help highlight your institutional impact and identify and connect your institution with the funding sources most likely to support your mission.

We help you answer key questions and deliver strategies for success:

  • What is our institution’s economic impact?
  • What value do we create for our community?
  • Which donor profiles should we pursue?
  • Are we optimizing our donor communications and sharing the right message?
  • How do we increase engagement with Generation Z?

A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

In the coming year, we are looking to expand into new markets, both programmatically and
geographically. Our upcoming selection of satellite campus locations and the expansion of programs in
existing satellite campuses will have a significant impact on the university. We hope that our partnership
with Hanover will aid us in selecting which current programs to offer in new locations, to generate
maximum enrollments and meet the needs of the community. When deciding which external partner to
work with, we were most impressed with the level of research Hanover provides at a very reasonable
price point.
