Campaign Process

Prior to each campaign, we routinely conduct a “Feasibility Study” to assess support for our respective client’s plan / program and develop a preliminary campaign strategy.

If the Study leads to a positive outcome, pending a board “go forward” decision, we then initiate campaign startup. We employ our proven Campaign Process that we customize to meet the particular needs and circumstances of each client. Highlights include:

  • Startup / establish meeting, reporting and other protocols
  • Accounting and legal – pledge handling policies and state registrations
  • Develop “Case for Support” and comprehensive “Ask package”
  • Develop / refine / prioritize prospect list
  • Implement campaign communications plan
  • Recruit campaign operations committee (high level volunteer leaders)
  • Make Asks of top 30 prospects in top-down and inside-out sequence
  • POWER 10 professionals “Make the Ask”
