Best Practices for Initiating a Capital Campaign During a Pandemic

Dates: 

February 3, 2021
11:00am-12:00pm EST

During these times of tremendous economic uncertainty for nonprofits, launching a capital campaign may seem imprudent to many. To the contrary, however, a pandemic may be the ideal time for tax-exempt organizations to initiate such an undertaking because capital campaigns serve two essential purposes that are of paramount importance in a recessionary economy: building mission awareness and raising much-needed funding.

During this webinar we will discuss:

- An overview of the capital campaign process, from planning through the campaign deadline date.

- Procedural best practices for nonprofits to ensure they are following appropriate accounting, financial reporting, and fundraising guidelines.

- Recommendations for reconciliations between accounting and development, the establishment of formal gift acceptance, and contribution recognition accounting policies.

The recording and slides will be shared following the presentation.
