AFP AZ, Greater Arizona Chapter Workshop

January 9, 2018

Campaigns used to be "once in a lifetime,” then…"once in a generation,” today they are..."once in a while."

In other words, less an extraordinary and more of an occasional event. The reason why they have become more commonplace is simply because they work. 

If your organization is considering a capital, endowment, special or comprehensive campaign, this session will provide a good introduction and help you understand the opportunities and challenges such campaigns present and what you need to get started with one and what to do if your campaign has stalled.

This session will cover:

  • The environmentThe fundamentals
  • What to do to get started
  • What to if your campaign stalls

Approved for 1.5 CFRE points
