Providing Fundraising Counsel for a Nonprofit's Capital Campaign
Our experience in planning, training and execution can put your capital campaign over the top.
Philanthropy Solutions, LLC. can help your capital campaign over-achieve. We don't believe in "one size fits all," or in a "canned" approach. We look at each situation as a unique fundraising opportunity in itself.

1. Plan the capital project carefully, down to the last detail, in collaboration with your organization's executive and development staff.

2. Create a sound business plan for the project; crunch the numbers thoroughly, so that it is an airtight business proposition that cannot fail.

3. Train the  Board in their roles and responsibilities in the capital campaign.

4. Do a feasibility study to determine the organization's internal strengths and weaknesses, discover what those outside the organization think of your project, learn where the lead gifts will come from, and discover any blocks and barriers to the timing of your campaign.

5. Help you choose the best, most appropriate volunteers to staff your campaign working group and the honorary campaign committee.

6. Train all staff and volunteers who will work on your campaign in their roles and responsibilities.

7. Create a compelling, motivating case for support for your campaign.  This is the set of reasons why anyone would contribute money to your capital project.

8. Design a recognition system that gives attractive and tasteful thanks, praise and recognition to those who have contributed.

9. Assist your staff and volunteers as they cultivate and solicit key gifts for your campaign.
