Formula for Impact
Young People Who Need Us the Most
+ Outcome-Driven Club Experience
= Priority Outcomes
The annual campaign is a classic fundraising vehicle that designs a specified period of time to approach individual donors for general operating support. By following the suggested time frame for conducting the campaign and with coordinated fundraising and marketing efforts and consistent messaging, the campaign will increase the awareness of Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the nation and create long-term relationships with donors.
The campaign is defined as: a board driven, volunteer-led effort to secure operating funds by obtaining unrestricted gifts from individuals, during a defined period of time, while demonstrating the impact of a Club’s mission. The It Just Takes One campaign is structured in a sequential manner. Clubs should begin preparation to run the campaign in November and start actively soliciting gifts in January. Campaigns should conclude in April, following the publicity and excitement generated by National Boys & Girls Club Week.
To build momentum and achieve success, each campaign component needs to be completed in sequence. It Just Takes One has five key time frames or phases:
- Planning and Strategy
- Family: Board and Staff Solicitation
- Flooring: Personal Solicitation of Top Donors and Prospects for Larger Gifts
- Friends: Broad-based Solicitations
- Celebration and Stewardship Begins
It Just Takes One has proven to impact a Club’s fundraising efforts in increasing monies raised from individuals.
