Determining your organization’s campaign readiness

Your board and CEO want to start a campaign. Are you truly ready to launch a successful campaign? Will you blast off and soar to new heights or will you sputter and fizzle out? In this presentation, Kay Sprinkel Grace, Organizational Consultant and founder of Transforming Philanthropy LLC, will outline the key elements that are crucial to a campaign’s success and will provide data points that indicate whether your organization, leadership volunteers and donor pipeline are poised for a successful campaign. She will present strategies to help you get ready if there are some areas that need work, and will provide messaging points to your board, volunteer and executive leadership to help position your campaign in the community. We all want our big visions and transformational programs to come to life: when the timing is right we need to be ready.  This presentation will help tee up your dreams.
