Never having conducted a capital campaign... we had everything to learn... she was an excellent partner.quote



There can be many barriers to an effective fundraising program:

  • limited board engagement in fundraising
  • staff capacity
  • poor planning of a campaign
  • an unclear or uncompelling message
  • a lack of philanthropic culture
  • poor systems of tracking and thanking donors
  • the list goes on and on
