After completing a feasibility study in conjunction with i5 Fundraising the State College Community Land Trust engaged Sophie Penney to serve as its campaign counsel. Individually and in groups, through formal and informal sessions, thanks to Sophie’s guidance we learned many lessons about capital campaigns in particular and fundraising in general.
“We discussed and reviewed what we learned in a marketing and fundraising committee meeting and discovered that we had acquired new, critical knowledge and skills related to: relationship building, asking for gifts, and more. The lessons that we learned served us well with the campaign, which reached its goal in five months. Those lessons will also benefit the Land Trust as it raises funds to support the ongoing work of providing affordable housing in the Borough of State College.”
