ProView: Raising Money vs. Raising ENOUGH Money
Since we first began raising money for chambers of commerce and economic development organizations almost 40 years ago, what we call the multi-year strategic initiative approach to funding community and economic development has become an accepted practice for communities and organizations of all types and sizes. The concept has become generically referred to by some as “superfund,” or “capital campaign” with a proliferation of consultants...
