About this event

Capital campaigns are based on process. Learn what happens in five phases typical to most capital campaigns – the family, quiet, leadership, close-out and public phases. Discover each phase’s goals and potential stalling points. Designed for executive directors, development leaders and board members, you will get the details of these capital campaign stages from actual campaigns, learn how to avoid the stalls before your campaign begins, and get comfortable with the process nonprofits use to raise the funds they need to grow and improve infrastructure to meet the needs of their clients and community.

Key Takeaways:

  • What to expect from each phase of typical capital campaign
  • Common challenges and how to overcome them
  • How to care for donors

This workshop will be presented by Kevin Wallace, President, and Carlyn Schulzke, Systems and Information Director/Consultant, Campaign Counsel.
