Behind the Curtain: How Do Campaign Studies Work?
Host: Brent Hafele
Capital campaign studies are critical to running a successful campaign.
Studies provide insight into how your organization is viewed by donors and prospects, whether your community understands the need for funding, and an idea of how much time is needed (among many other things).
The problem? Many nonprofits don’t know how they work or how to get started!
If you’re in need of a refresher, join expert Brent Hafele as he pulls back the curtain of mystery to:
- Explain the purpose of campaign studies
- Discuss the study process step-by-step
- Help you know when outside help is needed
