Capital Campaigns Course 2023/2024 (12 virtual sessions)
Thursday, November 30, 2023, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
Category: Funding

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. 
What is a capital campaign? A capital campaign, by bloomerang definition, is an intense effort on the part of a nonprofit organization to raise significant dollars in a specified period of time. Usually the money raised is to fund acquiring or renovating a building, but often the campaign’s focus is on building an endowment for the future.
