For more than 70 years, Gonser Gerber Advancement Consultants have been working with clients in education, healthcare, non-profits, and religious organizations in assessing their potential campaign goals, scope, strengths, and potential obstacles and challenges. In this work, which we call a campaign readiness study, we help organizations communicate capacity, generate interest of prospective donors, identify campaign leaders, and help decision makers conceive an achievable and successful campaign that can help your Institution further its mission and reach its fullest potential.
A good campaign readiness study will provide you with personalized, data-driven deliverables that informs your campaign decisions. It will assess your internal program, review external factors, gauge interest and intent of your top prospects, and submit concise recommendations based on this research.
Join Kent Huyser and Pam Spencer of Gonser Gerber for this one-day virtual workshop where we will walk you through the value of a campaign readiness study. In this program, we will spend time illustrating the vital steps of a study that help professionals gather information and ultimately help your institution decide whether you are ready for a campaign.
The fee for this one-day, virtual workshop is $595 for the first registrant, and $495 for each additional person from your institution. Current clients of Gonser Gerber Consulting get a discounted rate of $495 per person. Attendance is limited to 15 people.
