Whether you are raising money for a larger capital campaign or a smaller “bite-sized” campaign, it usually takes more preparation than you think. You need to clarify your organization’s strategic needs, recruit board members and key volunteers, engage your donors with your vision of the future, ensure the infrastructure to manage the work, and more. It’s not just a ‘bigger’ appeal, it means supporting a huge effort over an extended period of time. Capital campaigns are a lot of hard work, but they can pay off handsomely.
Matching your donors’ philanthropic goals with your organizational mission is what we in the nonprofit sector are called to do, and the result of a capital campaign – a renovated food pantry, a refurbished and accessible theater, a new bike path – is a hugely rewarding experience.
This interactive workshop will include handouts, lecture, dialogue, interactive sessions.
We will share with you well-established best practices to make the work of campaigns and special projects organized, efficient, and effective. Through the training you will learn how to:
Executive Directors, nonprofit fund development staff, and board members who are considering a campaign and/or anticipate a campaign within the next several years. This program gives you a comprehensive overview for what you need to know to get ready.
