Who is this for?
If you’re an Executive Director or Development Director and your organization is heading into a capital campaign, the Capital Campaign Toolkit is for you. It's designed specifically for people who have hands-on responsibility for planning and leading a capital campaign. If that’s you, the Toolkit will be invaluable.
How do I decide on the right level of support?
While some organizations use the Toolkit without additional support, we recommend getting started with an individual campaign advisor (Premium and Customized plans) to give your campaign a stronger foundation.
Essential Toolkit with Group Support
This more economical plan includes full access to the entire Toolkit. You get all the campaign tools, plus access to our Email Helpline, private Facebook group, and weekly Group Mastermind calls. These group calls will help keep you accountable and get your questions answered in real-time.
Premium Toolkit with Individual Support
Includes all campaign tools, plus everything in the Essential Toolkit. You'll also have regular access to an experienced campaign advisor. Your campaign advisor will guide you and up to five other members of your team through the campaign process. Regularly scheduled advising calls help you and your team move through each and every phase of your campaign.
Customized Toolkit with Tailored Support
Tailor the Toolkit to your organization's needs. Includes everything in the Essential and Premium Toolkits, plus a variety of optional services, such as a guided feasibility study and on-site campaign training for staff, board members, and volunteers. We’ll work with you to create the perfect Toolkit plan for the size and scope of your organization and its campaign.
How do I access the recordings, coaching calls, and materials?
All the materials are easily accessible on the Capital Campaign Toolkit website. Log on from any device. All you’ll need are your email address and your password. In the “Questions” tab, you will find a Zoom link (for video conferencing) and call-in number to access all coaching calls.
Does this replace having a consultant?
The Toolkit gives you all the resources a campaign consultant would provide in an easy-to-follow format at a fraction of the price. The Toolkit, combined with the support of one of our expert campaign advisors, will likely be enough for most organizations.
How much time will it take?
Your campaign is likely to take three years to complete and you’ll have full access to the Toolkit for as long as you like.
How can I afford the Toolkit?
The Capital Campaign Toolkit has been priced to give you everything you need for a capital campaign at a fraction the cost of a full-service consultant. Like all campaign expenses, the price of the toolkit should be included in your campaign budget. The real question is, how can you afford not to get it?
How do the Mastermind Weekly Group Calls work?
We are committed to answering as many of your campaign questions as possible during the weekly group call. However, occasionally, time will run out. If that is ever the case, someone will call you back and/or your question will be answered via email by the very next day.
Will I have personal access to Amy and Andrea?
Yes! Amy and Andrea will participate actively in the private Facebook group and on weekly group calls. They will be joined by other campaign experts in answering your questions via email as well.
What if I don’t like my assigned advisor?
Your success is our success. All of our advisors have extensive capital campaign experience. We assign advisors carefully, however, sometimes the fit simply isn’t right. If your advisor isn’t able to provide what you need, we want to know about it. We will do our best to solve the challenges or pair you with a different advisor.
Requests to switch a campaign advisor must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, and the switch will be made within one month.
How soon can I start?
Immediately! Once you purchase the Toolkit, you’ll get immediate and complete access to all the tools and materials, so you can download them and start working with them today.
