    9. 9. The Capital Campaign(cont’d)<br />Q. How should development professionals be spending their time until the economic indicators, and donor confidence, start looking up?<br />A. They should make sure the organization's case for support is in good shape and that it is compelling. They should share it with potential donors and get feedback. The recession should only affect case statements if the downturn has truly altered the need at the organization or the needs it serves. If the need has grown or changed, then the case might have to take on that kind of different intensity. But that should not be part of the case unless it's true. It would be wrong to create false urgency. It is important to have a communication approach that invites donors and prospective donors to reflect on the organization's plan and vision. Engaging donors in that real and meaningful exchange of ideas could and should be done right now. And given that potential donors to a capital campaign almost always are current donors, there should be high-quality stewardship going on. Fundraisers should be expressing their gratitude for past support and reporting on the impact past gifts have had. While the time is still not quite right for active campaigning, creating excitement among the organization's closest donors now will build momentum for when donors' general confidence is back up and they are ready to give. <br />
