Your campaign is a fundraising pinnacle.You want to do it right.
You will need increased staff capacity, donor research, skilled major gift management, a moves-management program, relationship maps between your stakeholders and donor prospects, superior data hygiene, donor acceptance policies, a donor recognition plan, and options for donor naming opportunities.
LAPA would like to partner with you as your campaign manager and fundraising counsel.
Our campaign advisors have extensive capital campaign experience. Each of them has guided multiple campaigns to success. They travel, come onsite, or work virtually.
A planning or feasibility study is often required to determine if you will have sufficient donor support to achieve a campaign goal. Just as you might hire an architect to draw your renovation or new construction plans, you also need a fundraising plan. The planning or feasibility study usually takes 90 to 120 days.
During this process, stakeholders’ and prospects’ perceptions of your organization are thoroughly assessed, and we also research their capacity to give. We then analyze the internal and external factors that can affect the success and timing of your campaign.
How Much Will Donors Give to Your Proposed Campaign?
LAPA’s planning/feasibility study will give you a real forecast of what is possible to raise. This forecast is based on interviews we conduct with select donors who have the capacity to give.
Tracking and Reporting
We keep your organization focused on objectives and measure the efficacy of our campaign strategies. We analyze and share the detailed progress of the campaign regularly to ensure successful steps forward.
