Successful Capital Campaigns

Capital campaigns differ from other forms of fundraising in that they are massive projects that can span several years and can raise millions but cost thousands. As such, capital campaigns require a targeted fundraising effort with specific phases to fund a significant capital project.

Whereas other types of campaigns will have general goals and benchmarks to aim for, the goals of a capital campaign are more specific and clearly laid out as the campaign progresses through its phases. The end goal of a capital campaign is usually something concrete, for example, a building, a major refurbishment, equipment, or land acquisition.

The distinct phases of capital campaigns set them apart from other forms of fundraising in that they offer an obvious delineation between private fundraising and public appeals.

Objective & Target Group

Capital Campaigns are one of the most effective ways to raise large amounts of funds over a specific period of time. But, a capital campaign is often a large scale undertaking which requires a number of staff, board members, and volunteers working together to deliver a complex project successfully.

This two-day workshop is invaluable for anyone who wants to understand the importance of investing in capital campaigns and will help not-for-profit organisations raise funds for significant capital projects. It will enable participants to understand how specialist, specifically targeted fundraising campaigns with distinct phases can improve the chance of success for funding a capital project.

This is a must for representatives from organisations who are considering embarking on a capital campaign or are in the early planning stages from chief executives, fundraisers, and the trustees who support them.
Consultants and fundraising specialists will also find it adds a new and vital dimension to the advice services they are able to offer their NPO clients.
