Capital Campaigns

Note from Gail:

I’ve personally guided 25 capital campaigns over the past fifteen years.  I’m proud to say that every one has been successful when they have followed the strategies that I laid out for the campaign.

In addition, they all have been public-private partnerships involving significant amounts of state, federal or local public funding. My political background and experience with government funding has enabled me to incorporate the effort to gain public funds into the campaign for private investment.

My approach to capital campaigns is all about the client organization. I get everything set up at the beginning: volunteers, case for support, strategies, materials. I get everyone trained and organized. I am very involved at the beginning, which is when you need the most strategic guidance.  Then I cut back my involvement gradually and let you take over when you are ready.

I also carefully limit the number of campaigns I do at one time so that my clients can have quick, direct access whenever they need me. I’d love to help you smash through your campaign goal,  achieve a whole new level of community visibility, and catapult your organization to a new level.

We ended our capital campaign at $28 million – well over our goal of $22 million, thanks to Gail’s strategic guidance. We are still reaping the benefits of that campaign today!
