Fundraising hints

Fundraising Hints

Phase 1

Phase 2

Start asking for and collecting pledges on phase 2 gifts as soon as possible.

Use visits to camp over the summer to inspire Phase 2 gifts from grandparents, parents, and alumni

Identify a major donor to help “close” phase 2 to finish (before March 18. 2012).

  • Start cultivating major donors now

  • Make a fundraising plan with your mentor

  • Proceed with a campaign even if you don’t get the Chai Match

  • Incorporate Chai Match in 2011 annual fundraising strategy


Questions

Questions:

  • Yes, but 1.) be careful of how you describe the matching pool to donors, and 2.) Grinspoon funds capped at $54,000.

  • Yes, but it isn’t the intent of the grant. We are looking for Camps who will use the campaign to reach out to more Alumni and camp supporters and increase the base of philanthropic support for camp.

  • A thoughtful fundraising strategy for this campaign. A current and compelling need.

  • Go for it, but plan accordingly. Speak with your mentor about strategies. Grinspoon payment of the Phase 1 match is dependent on receiving proof of payment of Phase 2 gifts. This will have budget implications.

Can the Campaign be larger?

Can a few major donors fulfill Phase 2 and finish the whole campaign quickly?

What are you looking for in a “competitive application”?

What if we take a risk to reach out to more Alumni in phase 2 and don’t meet our full goal?
