Capital Campaigns (Part 2): Hallmarks of a Successful Campaign

We had a great crowd and a lively discussion for Dan Reynold's December 6th presentation regarding the importance of pre-campaign feasibility studies for your nonprofit to have a successful capital campaign. If you weren't able to make it and would like a copy of the PowerPoint, please email Lisa Thorp (

Whether or not you were able to join us for Part 1, you are invited to come hear from Dan for Part 2 of his program this coming Tuesday December 13 (4-5:30 p.m.) at beautiful Central Library. In this session Dan will walk us through the elements of a capital campaign and will illustrate his overview with anecdotes from his many years of experience assisting area and national nonprofits achieve their goals.

Dan Reynolds has been with Holmes, Radford & Avalon, Inc. for nearly seventeen years. He worked for six years in the nonprofit field before consulting with a low-income housing organization in Chicago. Prior to joining HRA in 1999 he was a Director with Doorways, an inter-faith residence in St. Louis serving people with HIV/AIDS.

While you are at Central, you can visit the (hoodie- & award-winning - see pic) Grants and Foundation Center in the Social Sciences room - which at the moment is located directly behind the hockey goal (see other pic, below) in the Great Hall. While there, you can thumb through, or maybe check out, some books related to capital campaigns (link will take you to a list in our catalog) or other nonprofit topics; you may also want to set aside a little extra time to take in the Library's St. Louis Blues exhibit while you are downtown.

Pre-registration suggested (click here), but not required. Please contact Lisa Thorp ( with any questions.
