Capital Campaign Complete in Under a Year at The Mission at Kern County

Joy, Capital Campaign, Build

Carlos Baldovinos, Executive Director at The Mission at Kern County knew they needed a consultant for their upcoming Capital Campaign. “We’d never done a project this big and knew we needed assistance in walking through the process,” Carlos said.

After interviewing several capital campaign consultants, The Mission at Kern County team met and got to know Advocace at the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) Annual Convention.

Baldovinos said, “When we were looking to hire somebody we wanted them to fit with our culture, values and goals in mind. For me it was important that we kept relationships in mind when we presented a project. It’s not about sales, it’s about people’s lives—and Advocace is very ministry oriented.”

Advocace partnered with The Mission at Kern County during this capital campaign in three big ways:

  1. Strategizing—helping navigate through donors’ giving capacity with DonorCompassSM
  2. Capturing Donors’ Attention—showing samples of what printed materials needed to look like to capture a donors attention, etc.
  3. Following Up—helping after a conversation or pledge to know the best way to move the relationship forward

The Mission at Kern County achieved their Capital Campaign goal. (Although this is not typical in a capital campaign, being strategic, staying on task, and completing meetings and assignments on time allowed for this capital campaign to be completed in under a year.)

Carlos said, “Closing up the campaign in a short amount of time and achieving our goals within the year mark was big for us.”
