Capital campaigns are a great way to raise funds for important programs, services, or needs. The objective of your capital campaign is to raise funds for whatever program, service, or need requires a significant capital investment. They offer many benefits, including the ability to reach a large number of people, the potential to engage new donors, and the opportunity to raise significant amounts of money. Capital campaigns usually have a single objective and a specific timeframe to reach the financial goal; the campaign is conducted outside the regular programs and funding efforts for a given year. Capital campaigns usually run over the course of a year, somewhere between a six- and twelve-month period.
