How do I lead a successful capital campaign?
Play • 53 min

I’ve finally had to take my turn with Covid but thanks to the double-vax I was able to scrape enough energy to chat - in a strained, scratchy voice - with Lindsay Simonds, who specializes in capital campaigns, those big, special purpose fundraising efforts that take months of preparation and often several years to execute.  If that sounds intimidating, you’re not alone.  But Lindsay reminds us that most people haven’t done a capital campaign before and even if they have, each one has so many unique elements that inevitably you’re learning as you go.  We talk about some basic starting points, how to engage your Board and top donors and critically, how to work out how best to present your case for capital funding to a wider community.  Your ‘Why’ has to be convincing in order to get to the how and when.
