Campaign Trends: Poll Results from 94 Canadian Non-Profit Leaders
“Capital campaigns remain a vibrant, proven way to raise money, but we all know that there are an overwhelming number of options when considering your campaign strategy. Should the campaign be comprehensive? How will volunteers be recruited? What should be expected in terms of the lead gift? What should we set for a budget? KCI Senior Vice President Kathy Greenwood will share learnings from a recent poll KCI conducted of non-profit leaders across Canada to identify trends in campaign execution, tactics that work and who is giving to campaigns.”
