Papillon Press online training course: Capital Campaigns (21 May 2014)

Capital campaigns differ from ongoing fundraising for projects or core costs as they are planned and assembled for the specific purpose of raising a set amount of money, usually for a building, but could also be embarked upon for vehicles and/or equipment. Capital campaigns have start and end dates and are run via tried and tested methods.
