Build Your Campaign Consulting Business with the Right Tools

Building a capital campaign consulting practice is like climbing a mountain — one misstep, one failed campaign, can spell disaster. But when you’re properly equipped, your business thrives!

Introducing the Capital Campaign Toolkit for Consultants

Do You Feel Confident?

You want to build a successful campaign consulting practice, but you’re not sure you have enough experience…

  • Do you have enough experience to sell yourself as an expert?
  • Do you have the material you need to do an effective feasibility study?
  • Do you wonder where you’ll be able to turn for expert advice?

How can you develop a successful consulting practice when you’re unsure of so many things?

Your Success is On the Line

What if you’re simply not confident enough to sell your campaign consulting services convincingly?

With some campaign clients on the horizon, you don’t want to have to figure it all out on your own.

And when you’re selling yourself as the expert, there’s no obvious place to turn to get the information and models you need to guide a campaign client.

Look Like a Pro, But Quaking Inside?

If you feel a bit like a fraud, you’re not alone. Lots of consultants do!

You’ve got experience in the field, but that’s different from being a consultant.

On top of that, you know that if your clients’ campaigns aren’t successful, you’ll have trouble getting more work.

You need to equip yourself NOW so that you have everything you need to steer your clients in the right direction.

That’s Where We Come In

The Toolkit literally has everything I need to guide a client through a successful campaign. The Toolkit’s consultant community is also invaluable. It’s been a godsend to have this group to collaborate with throughout the pandemic. Even once we return to the “new normal”, I expect to stay connected to these terrific thought partners.

What’s Inside

Step-by-Step Guide

The Toolkit is divided into seven campaign phases, plus a special section for consultants. Each of the campaign sections has a specific step-by-step guide to lead you through that phase. They create a roadmap for you to use with your clients.

Overview Videos

Each phase begins with a recorded video by Andrea and Amy in which they review the concepts that shape that phase and then touch on what’s most important about each step.

Let’s Get Real For A Moment…

Your consulting practice is too important for guessing. The stakes are too high. It’s your livelihood we’re talking about!

Even if you’ve been a capital campaign consultant for a while, you may wish you had a complete set of campaign material to adapt and use with your clients.

And capital campaign consulting is one endeavor where too little information is plumb dangerous. You need to know as much as you can right from the start, so you can truly be the expert! That’s what your clients will pay you for.

Ensure the success of your campaign consulting practice TODAY!

I purchased the Toolkit because I was working with a client who needed to start a campaign to raise money for a newly purchased building. The resources are excellent! When I was working with my client, Amy and Andrea were both helpful in giving feedback on the project. I definitely would recommend the Toolkit — it’s invaluable.

Questions & Answers

{This is a hidden element so accordion does not begin OPEN — do not remove this element!}
Who is this Toolkit for?
If you’re a capital campaign consultant and you’d like a full set of campaign materials that you can rebrand, adapt, and use with your clients, then this Toolkit is for you. In addition, if you’re considering expanding your consulting practice to include campaigns, then this Toolkit is for you, too.

You get material you can adapt and use with your clients’ campaigns, along with materials that support essential consulting strategies and best practices. All of these materials save you time and boost your confidence.

Must my clients purchase this, too?
No. Some consultants do encourage their clients to purchase the Toolkit for Nonprofits. They often include it in their consulting fee. In that case, both you and your clients will be working from the same playbook. But other consultants share the tools with their clients throughout the campaign, rebranding the material for their firm. It’s entirely your choice.
How long will I have access?
The initial price of the Toolkit grants access for three years. During that time, you will be alerted to all of the additional material that is added to the Toolkit and you will have a listing in the Consultants Directory, plus access to our support programs. At the end of that period, you will be able to renew your subscription for a fraction of the cost of your original investment.
How do I access the Toolkit material?
All of the materials and recordings are easy to access on the Capital Campaign Toolkit for Consultants website. Log in from any device. All you need is your email address and password.
{This is a hidden element so accordion does not begin OPEN — do not remove this element!}
Who is this Toolkit NOT for?
The Toolkit is not for consultants who know little or nothing about fundraising. This Toolkit has been meticulously developed for experienced fundraising professionals who wish to include capital campaigns as a part of their consulting practice.
How can I afford the Toolkit?
The Toolkit for Consultants has been priced to give you everything you need for a fraction of the price you will charge a campaign client. You will be able to reuse the Toolkit material with client after client, with no additional expense. The investment you make when you purchase the Toolkit will be fully paid back (and then some) with your first client contract.
Can I get my money back?
Yes! But only for the first seven days after purchase.

Take a week and look over the material. If you’re not convinced the Toolkit will be essential to you as you build your consulting practice, we will give you your money back — guaranteed.

Will I have access to Amy and Andrea?
Yes! Amy and Andrea actively participate in the private Facebook group, as well as the regular Office Hours Calls each month. They are also available to answer questions through the email helpline.
