Capital Campaign Planning Course - Overview

 A capital campaign is, perhaps one of, if not, the greatest undertaking an organization can do in its lifetime.  Nonprofits have one opportunity to “get it right” and approach donors, prospective donors, and the general community with a compelling case and sound plan. 

If your organization is planning for a capital campaign one of our courses is for you.


The Benefits:

This course, led by a Nonprofit Network Capacity Building Consultant, will follow a capital campaign syllabus designed to review all elements of a capital campaign.  Sessions will include structured conversations and participants will gain knowledge around key topics including: 

  • feasibility studies
  • factors in working (or not) with a campaign consultant
  • organizational readiness; case for support
  • prospect identification
  • campaign leadership, phases and planning
  • one-on-one personal asks
  • lower end asks
  • special event utilization
  • campaign materials
  • appropriate thank you and recognition
  • staff involvement
  • concluding a campaign

The information is geared for Executive Directors, Development Directors, and leadership volunteers who have had a minimum of 3 years of fundraising experience including one-on-one asks of individual donors, successful experience with and infrastructure for collecting and stewarding annual gifts, major gifts, corporate gifts and preferably solicitation of planned gifts.

Participants commit to working on homework between meetings.  Materials will be provided unless otherwise noted in the syllabus.

*Not appropriate for organizations outside the United States since these sessions are based in
 and around the US culture.

How This Works*

Capital Campaign Planning groups will be customized with a minimum of 6 no more than 8 people per group to ensure time for questions and discussion. 

Costs The course is led by NN's Capacity Building Consultant who has more than 30 years of fund development experience and has worked on several capital campaigns. 

~ Members of NN Participation cost is $1,200 per person.

~ Non-Members of NN Participation cost is $1500 per person

Groups will then form as we identify convenient times and participants that represent a broad geographic area to assure no more than one participant from a specified community planning a capital campaign is in the same group.
