Marci Schick to present at LV Philanthropy Institute May 16

Marcella Moyer Schick, ACFRE, and Susan Nenstiel of the Lower Macungie Library, will present a session at the Lehigh Valley Philanthropy Institute on May 16, 2018. They will speak on Adapting Tried and True Strategies to your Unique Capital Campaign.


There are seven key ingredients of a successful capital campaign: 1) Visibility and a strong reputation; 2) a compelling and urgent case for support; 3) a committed board; 4) donors to make the required gifts; 5) volunteer fundraising leadership; 6) staff and fundraising systems to carry out campaign activity; 7) a culture and environment that supports philanthropy. How these are exemplified in practice depends on each organization’s unique circumstances. Good planning can help build on strengths and overcome weaknesses. We will focus on some of the tried and true strategies for campaign success and through examples explore how they can be adapted to fit a variety of circumstances.
