You've found the right place!

Large Campaign Panel  

Funders in Delaware who have historically participated in Large Campaigns (Capital Campaigns) have decided to pilot a new approach to the application process. They would like to save organizations precious time by having them present once to a wide variety of funders, some of which they may not have otherwise thought to approach.

Simultaneously, funders will be able to benefit from each other's questions and conversation during these presentations. Organizations will receive constructive feedback, which will be enormously beneficial to their campaign, and assist them in submitting more solid applications to each individual funder.

Organizations need to state their intent to begin a large campaign by completing the simple, 2-page PDF application on this page to begin this process, and bring their Large Campaign before the panel of funders. Click on the image to open the application.

For the current Large Campaign cycle, please send the completed PDF application to melissa@philanthropydelaware.org no later than Monday, July 1, 2019.  

Please note that all communication for this process/panel will go directly through Philanthropy Delaware (not individual funders), and that Philanthropy Delaware does not disclose the names or organizations of the panel members or presenters prior to the sessions. 

Here is a informative document from Chronicle of Philanthropy called "Required Reading for Running a Capital Campaign"
