Mini-Campaign Boot Camp

Raise $100K or More in Just 8 Weeks

In today’s world, funding is more important than ever. Many organizations have struggled through the year of COVID-19, but are ready to make the most of new opportunities.

Grasp the Opportunities…

Quickly raise the funding you need to continue your mission. With the help of one of our seasoned campaign experts, you’ll lead a mini-campaign to raise immediate funding to support your cause.

Over the course of 8 weeks, you’ll execute and launch a carefully coordinated small-scale campaign to raise $100K or more (depending on your donor base and funding needs).

  • Work with an experienced campaign advisor who will guide you through planning and executing your mini-campaign.
  • Participate in a cohort of up to 8 development professionals you can lean on for accountability and support.
  • Meet virtually with your advisor and cohort for 90 minutes each week (the day and time to be agreed upon by the group). All meetings are recorded for your convenience.

Through Your Mini-Campaign, You Will…

  • Draft a case for support for funds needed for immediate use.
  • Develop a slide deck to guide virtual donor conversations and solicitations.
  • Learn virtual solicitation techniques, along with your campaign volunteers and staff.
  • Virtually solicit your biggest and most loyal donors for immediate funding.
  • Mail and email your full donor list to achieve total participation.

NOTE:  This mini-campaign is intended for organizations that have an immediate need for an infusion of financial resources. It has been designed for organizations with an existing major gift program.

For a successful mini-campaign, you’ll need ten or more existing donors you are willing to ask for at least $5K.

My favorite aspect of participating in the Mini-Campaign program was the support of the cohort, plus the guidance and encouragement of the advisors. They walk with you through each step, providing consultation and amazingly easy-to-follow support materials.

As of today, we have raised $108,000, including $40K in matching funds. We should blow our $150K stretch goal out of the water! And the best news is that this early success has allowed us to post our Development Coordinator position which will add a second full-time staff member dedicated to fundraising. This process has been incredibly helpful to us!
