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.
