All in Pre-Campaign Planning
Budgeting for a capital campaign is always a challenge, in part because an organization doesn't want to foreclose on the possibility of a good idea just because it isn't in the budget. Therefore, the budgets and costs outlined in this article should be a guide only and careful thought should go into developing one for your specific situation.
A Request for Proposal (RFP) can be a valuable tool in evaluating capital campaign consultants but be sure to use it at the right time.
A capital campaign Case for Support is a document that outlines the needs and benefits of a nonprofit’s capital request. The very best Cases for Support weave together the image of the nonprofit, its role in the community, and how fulfilling that role benefits its users and the community.
Your donors are vital to your capital campaign success. While traditional feasibility studies determine whether your goal is reasonable, they may not give you all the information you need about your donors and their giving interest. A comprehensive pre-campaign planning study combined with a feasibility study will properly prepare you to launch a capital campaign.
