Capital Campaigns

Capital Campaign Planning and Leadership

How can you raise the money you need for your capital needs? Do you have the organizational infrastructure to take on a large capital campaign? What is the right monetary target and the right messaging? How will you staff and execute your campaign?

We can you meet these needs without negatively affecting your organization's overall operations, programming, and—most importantly—critical ongoing fundraising efforts.

At American Philanthropic we help plan and execute capital campaigns that are as varied and as complex as the needs of our nonprofit clients. Drawing on our experience with hundreds of nonprofits and our own proprietary data, our consultants can provide not only a strategic capital campaign plan that makes sense for you, but also help you implement that plan, providing the leadership and the time on task you need for your to succeed—from beginning to end.

Is now the right time? Can we be successful? What is the plan? How do we execute it?


Is now the right time to launch a capital campaign? What aspects of your development program might be affected by undertaking a capital campaign right now? Do you have the donor base to make this a reality? We can help you decide whether a capital campaign is the right move for your organization at this time. 

Feasibility Study

What are the key goals and objectives of your capital campaign? What do you ultimately want to achieve? What is the right financial goal and how it it be used? What is the overall budget? Where will your lead gifts come from?

We help you address their goals, the means you have of reaching them, and the timeline you want to govern the campaign. We also survey your key stakeholders to gauge their relation to the campaign case statement, the campaign goals, determine how much they are likely to give, and identify lead gifts. All of this help provide you with the most complete picture possible before proceeding with your capital campaign.

Messaging and Plan

We help you finalize a name for your campaign, determine the final financial goals, objectives, and projects for the campaign, establish a campaign timeframe, set the calendar of activities, allocate personnel resources, and more.

We not only conceptualize and create your capital campaign plan, we help you execute and implement it—from beginning to end.
