When it comes to “capital campaigns,” all too often we can’t help but focus on the pain rather than their tremendous benefits. However capital campaigns don’t have to be painful and can actually be a great boost for a nonprofit’s fundraising. If you need a new building, major renovations, major equipment, or a larger endowment to fund program growth, a capital campaign may be right for you. But how do you assure a successful campaign?
It has been said that before the campaign can be successful, it must succeed on paper. In this session we will discuss the key elements of successful campaign, including building a solid infrastructure, creating a committee board, and enlisting a powerful campaign cabinet. Please join Linda Lysakowski for a webinar that will help you develop a plan to have all of these elements in place before you launch a capital campaign … and build a stronger fundraising program after the campaign ends.
