Congregations awarded into the National Fund receive an individualized package of technical assistance based on these services, and tailored to the needs of congregations currently invested in major capital building efforts. The technical assistance package typically includes at least one on-site visit to the congregation to present an orientation to the National Fund program and conduct related activities. These activities focus on best practices for capital campaign fundraising, including engaging deeper levels of support from community stakeholders, and share advice for leveraging the benefits of the National Fund into greater financial success.
This assistance may include:
Advising the campaign steering committee
Accompanying congregational leaders to meet with local funders or civic leaders
Meeting with the project architect regarding preservation considerations
Conducting a space-sharing workshop
Facilitating a stakeholder event
Once awarded into the program, participating congregations are assigned a staff contact who will coordinate on-site activities and maintain remote correspondence throughout the duration of the program for advice, coaching, and support as needed.
