Capital Campaign Readiness & Planning
A capital campaign is a promise to the constituents your serve. When embarking on campaigns that can reach tens to hundreds of millions of dollars it is critical to ensure that your organization has the capacity to carry out a successful campaign and support it for the life of the project, without damaging your existing or future financial health
AT LPA, we help you assess your readiness for a capital campaign, providing action steps to improve areas of opportunity, and guiding you through the planning and preparation necessary prior to launch. With our approach, you will test your assumptions, modify your plans if necessary, and know for certain that you can complete the project, so there will be no existential surprises when it is too late to change course.

Strategic planning provides direction, engagement, and a way to measure progress. LPA’s preferred planning model is effective, responsive, and flexible, designed to meet your organization where it is at this moment. Using demonstrated successful planning principles along with providing energetic leadership, LPA facilitates a comprehensive, engaging, and action-oriented planning process that will ensure your organization strengthens its capacity to achieve its mission.
Great non-profits are led by informed, engaged, passionate volunteers intentionally chosen for the skills and leadership competencies they bring to the board. Applying and nurturing governance best practices, great boards provide leadership AND serve as a crucial partner to the CEO/Executive to broaden and deepen their organizations impact. LPA provides services to help boards govern effectively, intentionally recruit and develop new board members, and provide strategic, fundraising, and fiduciary leadership for their organization.
Intentional and strategic fundraising and financial development not only provide critical resources for your organization, but also develops lasting partnership with donors, strategic partners, and the community. A great fundraising plan that includes an annual campaign, major gifts focus, genuine stewardship, and planned giving can create a portfolio of giving and donors who will help your organization broaden its impact and ensure its long-term sustainability. In addition, modern technology is available to support your fundraising efforts in surprisingly effective ways.
One of the most impactful experiences a child can have is attending an outstanding overnight camp. The best overnight camps teach young people to become thriving, caring, and confident adults and in return, campers grow to become employees, leaders, and eventually donors to the camp. Yet many camps struggle to stay open or don’t earn or raise the revenue they need to care for their facilities. The TRUTH: Camps can be modern, sustainable, and deliver on the values of tradition and unique experiences.

Kim's palpable passion and commitment to the residents motivated her strategic leadership from start to finish and was critical to the precedent setting outcome DASH achieved under her direction. It was an honor to work with her and the DASH team she led, in a case that garnered national attention in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (“LIHTC”) industry.
I cannot say enough good things about Kim and the whole LPA team. In the most stressful and tumultuous of times for our organization, they stepped in with an unrivaled level of professionalism, expertise and care for both the staff and the board. Kim and LPA were quickly able to assess what was needed in the short term as they provided stability, thoughtful suggestions and 360-degree support. More than that, Kim was an incredible thought partner with our search team as we navigated a challenging transition and hiring cycle. The flexibility and availabili
