If you’re planning a capital campaign, challenge gifts are the perfect way to reenergize your community of stakeholders and donors.
One of the strongest indicators of whether a capital campaign to fund a large project will be successful is the nonprofit organization’s history of successful annual fundraising.

Tackling a large capital campaign initiative is daunting under any circumstances. But if you can find strategic partners that understand philanthropy, your mission and your unique circumstances, leveraging their expertise and folding them into your processes can make even seemingly insurmountable goals achievable.
