When preparing for a campaign, a great deal of emphasis is placed on the internal readiness of the organization. Researchers must look at the campaign goals and affiliated gift tables, volunteer campaign cabinets, the donor pipeline, and prospect ratings among many other areas to be ready for a campaign. But, fundraisers and researchers need also to look at what factors outside of their organization may have a positive or negative impact on their pending campaign. The political or economic climate in your region, other major campaigns and senior volunteer activities are just a few of the external factors which may impact the success of your campaign. Join Tracey as she discusses the external factors researchers should consider for their organization to help prepare for their organization’s readiness for a campaign.
