Who We Are: Campaign Demystifiers

Our mission is to give you the tools, knowledge, and support you need to run your capital campaign as affordably as possible.

Our Story

Amy Eisenstein and Andrea Kihlstedt created the Capital Campaign Toolkit in early 2017 as a useful tool for their private clients. But since then, it has become so much more…

Through the Toolkit, Amy and Andrea discovered a way to revolutionize the capital campaign business by using online resources and virtual meetings to give you everything you need, efficiently and effectively.

Now nonprofit leaders have direct access to all the guidance and tools they need to implement successful campaigns — without the need to hire an expensive consultant.
