When you embark on a capital campaign or a special project campaign, you are in unfamiliar territory. We can coach you through the mysteries, frustrations and joys of these bigger, more challenging fundraising efforts.
Some of our campaigns start with Feasibility or Planning Studies that we conduct, some had another study arrangement, and some did not do a study at all: because our coaching is designed exactly to your needs, we can provide the expertise and guidance you need. We work with you on everything from timelines to prospect identification and research to solicitation strategy and training, materials development and trouble shooting …..plus critically important help in maintaining momentum and getting fresh perspective when you need it.
We will work with you to design a consulting relationship that offers you enough support, but not more than you need or can afford. We will not ‘run’ the campaign but will help you find the right on-site person to do that, as staff or volunteer. Together we will determine the amount of consultation you need depending upon the scope of the campaign, your internal strengths and gaps, and any unusual circumstances you are facing.
