Fundraising Infrastructure & Capital Campaign Coordination
Urban Assets understands that successful fundraising initiatives require a considerable amount of planning. We also understand that non-profits are often so busy with the day to day operations of their organizations that the thought of translating their vision for growth into tangible fundraising goals can be overwhelming. Urban Assets can manage capital campaigns using engagement strategies and processes tailored to each client's unique set of circumstances and goals.
Urban Assets can develop and manage public participation processes, from stakeholder surveys to community workshops, to gather input into a planning process, test ideas, build consensus, and facilitate approvals.
