  • A Feasibility Study should be done for every campaign.
  • A consultant is essential in achieving the best in dollars produced, mission enhancement, and constituent harmony.
  • Development of the “case” or list of items to be accomplished is one of the most important steps in campaign strategy.
  • Training an army of volunteers is critical to success.
  • Setting achievable deadlines and proper coaching will decrease the length of the process and improve success.
  • Endowment components in campaigns have become more normal in recent years and should be embraced enthusiastically.
  • Planned Giving can be included in campaigns.
  • Done properly, a capital campaign will actually improve your Annual Fund results.

You need a consultant you can trust and who can tailor a project to your individual situation.  Mountain Non-Profit Solutions will listen to you and help provide the results you need.
