Take the Pain out of Your Capital Campaign. You Can Do It!
Are you intimidated by the idea of a capital campaign? Do you have questions about how to run a successful capital campaign, where to find donors, and how to approach them for money? Do you dread your upcoming capital campaign because you’ve heard how disruptive and challenging they can be?
Don’t worry. In this course, I will help take the pain out of your campaign and give you everything you need to know.
In addition to eight comprehensive video lessons comprising 7.5 hours of instruction, I include with this course the PDF version of the book I co-authored with Joanne Oppelt, How to Run a Successful Capital Campaign.
You will learn essential principles such as how to assess your readiness for a campaign, what kind of campaign materials you will need, how to find the right campaign chair, how to find and solicit donors, whether you need a planning study, and even how to manage life after the campaign.
You will also come to understand the seven keys to a successful campaign and the pitfalls you need to avoid. You will see who your best donor prospects are and how to approach them.
I’ll even teach you how to build on the strengths of your campaign for a stronger development program in the future.
To give you a fast start, you’ll receive samples of campaign plans, budgets, and timelines.
If a capital campaign is in your future, you want all the tips and tricks I have learned over my years of experience. You can start benefiting from my years of success by signing up now.
