Hammond, IN - Virtual Advisory Services Panel
Hammond, Indiana's new Downtown Master Plan suggested a bold new vision. ULI was asked to provide strategic advice for how to achieve it.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is the preeminent global, multidisciplinary real estate organization, facilitating the open exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experience among local, national, and international industry leaders and policymakers dedicated to shaping the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide. Structured as a 501(c)(3), nonprofit, member-driven research and education organization, the Institute has more than 45,000 global members representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines, both in private enterprise and public service.
ULI uniquely benefits its members and their communities by leveraging members’ collective intellectual capital and diverse on-the-ground experience. Members include real estate developers, builders and owners, finance and investment professionals, auditors and accountants, brokers and consultants, attorneys, architects, engineers, urban planners, public officials, quasi-public economic development agency executives, and academics. For, and through, these diverse member constituents, ULI provides various educational programs, publications, forums and meetings, applied research, instructional modules, and advisory services.
In 1970, the Urban Land Institute Foundation (ULIF) was established as a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit to support the research and programs of the Urban Land Institute. The Foundation encourages philanthropic giving among the Institute’s members and partners with the principal purpose to establish and build an endowment, and to provide ongoing financial support for ULI programs and initiatives. ULIF is committed to the stewardship of all philanthropic donations it receives.
The Foundation only raises funds for purposes that are in alignment with and support the Institute’s mission, business plan, priorities, and program of work worldwide. To this end, ULI has developed a governance structure and a set of policies and procedures that uphold transparency and accountability as core values. The business of the Foundation is managed by its board of directors. The future of ULI will focus on endowment building and concentrate on raising a permanent endowment fund to be used for the Institute’s impact-generating, mission-focused programs.
The Director of Digital Fundraising & Communications, working with the ULIF President and Membership & Marketing teams, is responsible for leading digital fundraising for the Annual Fund and creating fundraising messages and collateral, and stewardship communications in support of a full-scale fundraising effort for external audiences.
The focus on digital fundraising will primarily be geared toward the acquisition and retention of annual fund donors through online fundraising; the focus on digital development communications will be for middle- and major-level donors. Both foci will require a digital strategy using email, website promotions, and other digital channels. The Director of Digital Fundraising & Communications will also collaborate closely with marketing staff to ensure consistency with theme, brand, design, content, and delivery, following established ULI brand guidelines.
