Presented in collaboration with the Association of Nonprofit Specialists

Are you on the cusp of a substantial building or renovation project? Do you need to grow your programs or your endowment (who doesn’t)?

Many nonprofit leaders facing these challenges are not prepared for the rigors of a capital campaign that can provide the funding. Others commit to the project and start the train running yet leave the fundraising until late in the process. These are just a few of the pitfalls of not being ready for your campaign.

This day-long workshop led by Peter Heller of Heller Fundraising Group, will help you analyze and prepare the 6 Key Elements for Capital Campaign success:

  • Case for Support
  • Dollar Goal
  • Donors
  • Steering Committee
  • Staffing and Systems
  • Timing

These tools can be used for any size campaign but those who are considering a $5 million+ project will especially benefit. If you are an executive director, development director, major gift officer, or board member please join us for this hands-on learning opportunity.

In last year's iteration of this session, participants said:

“Because of Peter’s systematic approach, I gained clarity about what I need to do next to prepare my nonprofit for our capital campaign.”

“I feel much more comfortable speaking with my board about our campaign challenges and action items.”

“We may not be ready for our capital campaign yet, but we now know how to investigate it.”

By taking this workshop, you’ll be able to evaluate exactly how ready you are for your campaign and will return to your office knowing the next steps you need to take for success.
