A campaign is on the horizon…
How do you best position your institution for success? How do you translate your campus needs into successful campaign objectives? How do you inspire prospective donors to make transformational gifts?
At the root of every successful campaign is a solid campaign plan.
Join our Gonser Gerber consultants as they walk you through everything you need to know for a successful campaign.
An institutional campaign is not an endeavor that can be taken on by one department or just the institutional leadership – your entire community needs to be prepared when you are in “campaign mode”. This workshop will outline what you need to do to get everyone at your institution ready to engage in a campaign – this includes leadership across your institution, your current and potential donors, and your development staff.
Attendance is limited for this Gonser Gerber Institute intensive two-day workshop that will get you ready to begin a campaign at your institution. Designed for members of your leadership team and development staff, participants will have a hands-on experience in addition to the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals in all phases of the campaign. Participants will also be given the tools and time they need to actually begin planning for their institutions campaign.
Topics we will discuss include:
- From Strategic Plan to Case Statement
- Assessing Internal Readiness
- Identifying and Utilizing Campaign Volunteers
- Campaign Budget and Resources
- Quiet Phase
- Monitoring and Measuring Your Success
