Capital Campaigns

A capital campaign is a shared experience for those who seek funds and those who have funds. We guide our clients through this experience as they strengthen existing relationships and cultivate new ones.

We refer to all of our capital campaigns as Fishing Differently, not fundraisers. We introduce congregational leaders to multiple sources of capital through series of workshops, storytelling, leadership challenges, and celebratory gatherings all working together in a way that will accelerate generosity to empower your community to assist you in accomplishing you vision and mission.

Our team has extensive experience guiding organizations through successful capital campaigns, from Wall Street to Main Street.

Congregations, Judicatories, Synods, Assemblies, etc.

Whether you are seeking to conduct a capital campaign for new buildings, renovation/expansion, debt reduction, or any other type of fundraising, our approach for communities of faith incorporates three basic assumptions:

  1. The fundraising goal exceeds what the faithful members are able to give
  2. The fundraising process will experience delays, disappointments and disputes.
  3. The fundraising request is a proclamation that offers other people and organizations an opportunity to participate the vision and mission of the community of faith.

Seminaries and Colleges

Whether you are looking to conduct a campaign for new facilities, scholarships, an endowment, a combination of the above, or any other type of major fundraising campaign, our approach for seminaries and colleges incorporates three basic assumptions:

  1. The fundraising goal exceeds what can be achieved from alumni support
  2. The fundraising process will experience delays, disappointments and disputes.
  3. The fundraising request is a proclamation that offers other people and organizations an opportunity to participate the vision and mission of the seminary or college.

For Profit Social Enterprises and B Corps

Whether you are seeking to raise equity capital for a start-up or for expansion an existing enterprise, our approach for for-profit social enterprises incorporates three basic assumptions:

  1. The fundraising goal exceeds what charitable donors are willing to fund
  2. The fundraising process will experience delays, disappointments and disputes.
  3. The fundraising request is a proclamation that offers other people and organizations an opportunity to participate the vision and mission of the for-profit enterprise.
