Are you a board member? Do you and your board members want $10 million? Should be a piece of cake, right?
Let me give you some tips.
Failure is not an option when you say you want $10 million. The real question for board members is, “Are you ready?”
Are you ready to give to the project?
Are you ready to commit for three years minimum on the board and in other roles?
Are you ready to invest 5% of the goal in the tools needed for a successful campaign?
If you have doubts, we should talk.
No one would risk investing in a project unless they researched it further. Boards should hire HC to conduct an independent study about the feasibility of people giving $10 million.
These research studies always produce campaign leadership and initial donors. Don't play with your reputation or your organization's reputation. You should invest in what is typically called a campaign feasibility study.
