The Toolkit Puts You In the Driver’s Seat

And you’ll gain the knowledge, confidence, and support you need to lead every stage of your capital campaign.

About the Toolkit

The Capital Campaign Toolkit is a comprehensive, online platform for planning and leading a successful capital campaign — without the need to hire a traditional campaign consultant.

You’ll find templates, worksheets, planning resources, step-by-step guides, and a variety of other tools that walk you through your campaign, from start to finish.

All of these tools come standard with any Toolkit plan. Each plan also includes access to experienced campaign advisors to help you along the way.

The Toolkit was created by two of the sector’s leading fundraising experts —
Amy Eisenstein and Andrea Kihlstedt.

Why a Campaign Toolkit?

When Amy and Andrea began working on the Toolkit in early 2017, they saw it 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 and take advantage of a transformational shift that’s affecting so many sectors.

For the first time, nonprofit leaders have direct access to all the tools they need to plan and implement their own successful campaigns, without the need to bring in an expensive consultant.
