Are you considering a capital campaign in the next 24 months? Believe it or not, you should be thinking through some key decisions now. Early preparation can put you on track to success and save you from costly (and embarrassing) mistakes with your most important donors.
Whether you are raising $1,000,000 or $50,000,000 – there are basic building blocks for success. Wouldn’t it help to have those spelled out before you even begin? There is so much to learn and so little time to take it all in. That’s why our expert team will guide you through these key questions with real-life application to help you start your campaign the right way.
- How do we put together a compelling and urgent case statement?
- When will we know how much we can raise?
- How do we identify the right prospective donors and avoid donor fatigue?
- How do we maintain annual giving during the campaign?
As an added bonus we will give you a 90-minute onsite follow-up consultation. You can use this as a review of your progress, a private coaching session, or even a training event with your board.
Cost $150 per person.
Lunch will be served.
Registration is limited!
