Fundraising Basics for Private School Facilities.
Roach, Arthur H.
This report examines the process behind setting up and implementing a "capital campaign," a program for raising money for new or renovated facilities at private K-12 schools. The report briefly covers tax information regarding gifts to institutions, then offers advice for setting up a comprehensive development program, including fundraising software and tips on implementing all the components of a development program. Campaign planning issues are discussed on using fundraising consultants, drafting and assembling specific campaign documents, conducting a feasibility or planning study, and developing a campaign strategy. Final comments explore what to expect and be prepared for while conducting a capital campaign. (GR)
