Capital campaigns are an exciting venture! To be successful it’s vital that an organization is well prepared months, sometimes years, before the campaign kicks off. Capital campaigns are a unique type of fundraising and can feel very overwhelming if the organization has never conducted one.
Amanda White Consulting offers the following services to ensure your organization is fully prepared and confident through every stage of your capital campaign journey.
- Feasibility Study – A good feasibility study is well worth the investment. Conducting this specialized form of market research will help you understand your potential donors’ and the community’s perspective on your organization; a dollar amount for your campaign that is achievable, initial campaign leadership volunteers, and funding.
- Capital Campaign Plan – Getting everyone within the organization on the same page as to goals, tactics, timeline, and roles is essential. Campaigns fail when organizations fail to plan.
- Capital Campaign Coaching – Amanda can offer advice on a range of campaign topics including preparing your prospect list, timeline and phases of the campaign, how to secure a lead gift, and more. Coaching provides a one-on-one in-depth opportunity to feel confident administering your campaign.
- Capital Campaign Management and Administration – Many organizations do not have the staff resources in house to manage a multi million dollar campaign. Amanda White Consulting can provide campaign management and administration. We’ll take care of all the campaign to-do’s while your staff is freed up to build relationships and secure major gifts.
