Beyond Bricks & Mortar: Raising Funds for Abstract Causes
Changing Our World
Capital Campaigns. These words, traditionally, evoke images of new and majestic buildings, expanded and elegant programming spaces and improved recreational, computing or meeting facilities. Increasingly, with the growth of the nonprofit community and with the ever-increasing complexity of the issues that this community is seeking to address, capital campaigns are becoming moments for resource mobilization that have little to do with those causes that have been traditionally addressed through such initiatives. Using case studies, James will discuss and demonstrate the methodologies that have been applied in the development and implementation of capital initiatives for non-traditional causes.
James Kopp serves as a senior managing director at Changing Our World. To this position, he brings more than 27 years of senior advancement counsel experience; experience as the dean and vice president in public and private institutions of higher education; proven fundraising capabilities, having raised more than $250 million dollars for nonprofit organizations; and experience managing campaigns for Green Mountain College, Albany Law School, Paul Smith’s College and other educational entities. Jim holds a Mater of Arts degree from the University of Maine and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cathedral College Seminary of the Immaculate Conception.
