Capital Campaigns: The Essential Elements of Success from Moses to Modern Times

Capital Campaigns: The Essential Elements of Success from Moses to Modern Times

rhCapital campaigns are intimidating. They involve a lot of decisions, planning and work, along with uncertain outcomes. And often there’s a lot at stake. Hearing from those who have completed successful capital campaigns is one of the best ways to prepare for a new campaign or to navigate your campaign that’s already underway.

Join fundraising executive Rob Henson as he provides an interactive presentation utilizing research, his experience and anecdotes about the ingredients for a successful capital campaign. Henson will bring a mixture of real-life examples and templates, as well as campaign theory from current trends in modern philanthropy.

At this luncheon workshop, you will learn:

  • the basic processes and steps of a successful capital campaign.
  • building blocks of the elements necessary to construct your own spirituality of a capital campaign.
  • the people and roles necessary to run a successful capital campaign.

Rob Henson is a certified fundraising executive and has consulted on more than 85 capital campaigns; half of those were in the faith-based sector. He has 18 years of experience in fundraising and philanthropy. An Evansville resident, Henson published a book on planned giving and will publish a book on congregational capital campaigns in 2019. 

This luncheon workshop is 11 a.m.-1 p.m. (Eastern time) Thursday, October 10, 2019 at Kimberlin Creek Baptist Church in Scottsburg. The cost is $10 per person. This fee includes conversation, lunch and workshop materials. The workshop is limited to Indiana congregations.
