Marci Schick to present at the 2018 Capital Conference

Marcella Moyer Schick, ACFRE, and Joan Mummert and Terri Altland of the York County History Center, will present a session at the 2018 Capital Conference on September 26, 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.

AFP Central PA Chapter has an exciting schedule planned for this year’s Capital Conference, September 26, 2018, at the Eden Hotel & Resort, Lancaster. Learn more and register at
