Grant proposals are an important part of the quiet phase of capital campaigns, but if you aren’t experienced in writing for a capital campaign, there are a lot of questions you may want to ask an experienced grant professional:
- How do you decide which funders to approach and when?
- Should you cannibalize your current funders?
- How do you write outcomes for capital campaigns?
- Do you write about raising the money, the building of the building, or the programs that are happening in the building? Is the answer all three?
Julie Assel, GPC, President and CEO of Assel Grant Services answers these questions and more as she takes you through the things you need to know about grants and capital campaigns. Some organizations contract their capital campaign work out, but others keep this work in-house. If your organization is contemplating a capital campaign in the next few years, or you have ever wondered if you could write the proposals for your organization, this is the session for you.
Participants will learn the following:
- How grants fit in with the overall capital campaign pyramid and timeline.
- How to strategize which funders to approach, and when in the campaign is the best time to approach them.
- How to build a case statement that evolves over time as the groundbreaking draws near.
- How to describe capital expenditures as budget details goes from scarce to detailed.
- How to answer questions about the capital campaign, construction, and program outcomes.
- What contractual services are the most commonly available to support the grant portion of capital campaigns.
