Balcony View of a National Health Crisis

by Diana Holder and co-authored by Sid Davis

Evenings here in the Basque-Spanish resort city of Donostia-San Sebastián are when the streets used to come to life. But during the ongoing nationwide estado de alarma—the confinement of Spanish citizens necessitated by the spread of COVID-19—there's barely a soul to be seen. Above the streets, though, there's still life on the balconies. At 8 pm sharp, people gather on their balconies to solemnly applaud health workers stretched to the limit trying to treat cases of the virus. Whether any are around to hear the applause isn't the point. They know it's happening, and that it's for them, wherever they are.

The Power of 3:
Capital Campaigns With CampaignCounsel.org (NEW)

Registration deadline: Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Is a capital campaign in your future? You're not alone, as 74% of nonprofits recently indicated they were in a campaign or planning one. These three webinars, presented by Kevin Wallace and Carlyn Runnels of CampaignCounsel.org, are designed to help your nonprofit organization understand and prepare for the process of raising big dollars for capital projects. The first webinar, Are You Ready for a Capital Campaign?, will help you ask and answer six questions vital to preparing for the pre-campaign process and the campaign itself. In the second webinar, Essential Capital Campaign Preparations, learn about the pre-campaign steps of needs assessments and feasibility studies, what to expect from these tools, and how they can help you understand the financial capacity of your organization and its donors. The third webinar, The Stages and Challenges to Expect During a Capital Campaign, will help you understand the five phases typical to most capital campaigns and the stages and challenges that come with each phase. These webinars can be taken together to methodically build your organization’s readiness to take on a capital campaign or as stand-alone learning opportunities. Executive directors, development directors, and board leaders from a broad range of nonprofit organizations will benefit from these 90-minute presentations.
