The Capital Campaign Review Board (CCRB), in partnership with the Central Penn Business Journal and The Foundation for Enhancing Communities is distributing a survey to nonprofit organizations across Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry Counties requesting each nonprofit organization announce or confirm their intention to organize a capital campaign for 2016 – 2020 by July 1.

A capital campaign is an organized drive to collect and accumulate substantial funds to finance major needs of an organization such as the purchase of a building or major renovation project.

In order to determine which capital campaigns are underway or planned, nonprofit organizations receive an annual questionnaire about their past, current and future capital campaign plans and return them to the CCRB. The CCRB reviews each questionnaire and determines which proposed capital campaigns to place on the CCRB five year master schedule.

The CCRB evaluates each capital campaign proposal based on the following criteria: established monetary goal, detailed financial information, approval by the nonprofit organization’s Board of Directors and completion/intended completion of a feasibility study.

The CCRB provides the final schedule to the corporate and private foundation donor community highlighting which capital campaigns have been reviewed. To complete the survey, visit Central Penn Business Journal Capital Campaign Survey.
