Customized Solutions. Sustainable Resource Strength.
For many nonprofits, capital campaigns have been the traditional answer to funding their capital needs, but capital campaigns are a short-term episodic form of fundraising. They are beneficial if capital resource needs are also short-term and episodic. Over the course of 50+ years of work in healthcare exclusively, we’ve found that there are rarely any shortages of capital needs in community hospitals.
Our focus, by contrast, is backed by a proven approach to increase charitable support, social capital, and marketing strength every year, every day.
