Frequently the associations, foundations and chambers of commerce’s we work with realize that the strategies and tactics detailed in their strategic plan require additional and substantial financial resources above and beyond their current revenue sources (i.e., membership and programs). It is not unusual then for the organization to embark on a campaign to raise funds apart from their annual budget. The funds are designated for a specific purpose – either a tangible one such as a new facility or the expansion of an existing one, or an intangible one such as tackling a specific problem or opportunity in the marketplace.
