Pre-Campaign Study

The first step toward a successful campaign, a Pre-Campaign Study tests the feasibility of your goals to develop a plan that meets short- and long-term needs.

The Pre-Campaign study results in a broad, research-based plan focused on building and sustaining donor relationships to power success during and after the campaign.

“Because this was our first major campaign, we knew we needed to build a culture of philanthropy among our members. Initially, our national headquarters didn’t have the institutional knowledge to manage donor relations adequately. Working with Hartsook gave us the information and perspective we needed to accomplish our goals.”

– Steve Nelson, National Executive Director, Kappa Kappa Psi & Tau Beta Sigma
