September 28: Executing Capital Campaigns in a Crisis: Pandemic-informed strategies for success

Is a capital campaign looming for your organization? Or maybe your campaign has stalled and you’d like to adjust your goals and plans? No matter the stage of your capital campaign, if you are looking for tools and creative ideas for campaign execution during a pandemic, join us for a panel discussion with two efficacious organizational leaders and an industry expert.

Moderated by Essex & Drake Fundraising Counsel President, Chelsey Souza, CFRE, we’ll hear from Tiona Brady, CFRM, Executive Director of the Alameda County Library Foundation, and Denise Bridges, Development Director at Open Heart Kitchen. Chelsey, Tiona, and Denise will share their insights and unique experiences executing successful capital campaigns during a pandemic. Attendees will learn effective and creative strategies for cultivating and soliciting prospective donors, managing volunteers, marketing and communicating about the campaign, leveraging matching grant challenges, adding micro campaigns, and more!
