Capital Campaigns

A capital campaign is a time-limited effort by a nonprofit organization to raise significant dollars for a specific project.

Often the money raised is to fund the acquisition, construction or renovation of a building. Sometimes, capital campaigns are used to build an endowment for the future. In other cases, capital campaigns fund an extraordinary expenditure, such as an expensive piece of equipment.

Capital campaigns have a beginning and an end, but often span several years. A capital campaign employs all the usual means of raising funds such as direct mail, special events and direct solicitation. Capital campaigns require extraordinary preparation and skillful execution.

TFEC can perform various transactional services, through a contractual project agreement, to assist nonprofit organizations with their capital campaigns.

TFEC can help your organization execute a successful capital campaign through a project services agreement allowing you to upgrade infrastructure, renovated buildings or grow your endowment fund.
