Becoming Campaign Ready

Did you know that most major campaigns fail due to inadequate planning prior to soliciting the first dollar? To avoid false starts and wasted resources, your organization must become campaign-ready.

The Aleph Group, Inc. will help your organization address any and all organizational weaknesses identified in a Development Audit. If warranted, we will also recommend conducting a feasibility study to establish campaign readiness.

You will know you are ready for a campaign if you can answer these questions:

  • Do your prospective major gift donors see your case statement as compelling?
  • Will your constituents fully support your project with high-calibre gifts?
  • Do you have sufficient numbers of donors poised to support you?
  • Will your Board set the pace for this campaign with gifts totaling 20-30% of the overall goal? Will they secure other major gifts?
  • Do you have sufficient human and financial resources to launch a campaign?
  • Can your technology handle a campaign's rigorous demands?
  • Are your campaign policies, procedures and related documents up-to-date?

To become campaign-ready call 410-484-2373 or e-mail for more information about raising major funds.
