Led by Linda Lysakowski, ACFRE, President, Capital Venture

How can you know whether your campaign will succeed?

Whether for "bricks and mortar" or a special project or program, all major fundraising campaigns face the same challenges.

Many organizations enter into a capital campaign without understanding the pitfalls that can wait for those who are unprepared for the intense pace, the public scrutiny and the pressure of meeting the campaign goal in a timely manner.

If you've never run a major campaign, this will be the most valuable investment of time and money you'll make this year.

This fast paced session will guide you through seven areas in which many organizations lose their way.

Is your organization considering a campaign of $500,000 to $10,000,000? If so, this workshop is for you. Linda will discuss the problems many campaigns encounter.

Seven Essential Building Blocks to Help You Avoid the Pitfalls of Capital Campaigns, topics to be addressed:

  • Campaign Preparation
  • The Campaign and The Overall Development Program
  • Campaigns and Special Events
  • The Importance of Campaign Materials
  • Fair - Share Giving
  • The Unnecessary Consultant
