Mini-Campaign Boot Camp

Raise $100K or More in Just 8 Weeks

Through Your Mini-Campaign, You Will…

  • Draft a case for support for funds needed for immediate use.
  • Learn in-person and virtual solicitation techniques, along with your campaign volunteers and staff.
  • 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!
