Capital Campaign Case Study ~ Lodi Christian School
Soon after the Board made the decision to explore relocation options, Temple Baptist Church contacted the school with a co-location offer. The partnership would provide the church with a means to fulfill its goals for providing families with the opportunity for Christian education while providing the school with an opportunity for amazing, state-of-the-art, new facilities in a highly convenient location ~ immediately adjacent to a Christian High School ~ and at a fraction of what it would otherwise cost to build from the ground up at a “green-field” site.
- Achieved school's financial objectives related to $6 million construction costs
- Campaign completed on time to finish construction and move into new facilities on time for new school year
- Provided for relocation to an all-new, centrally located campus with modern classrooms, full gymnasium, kitchen & concessions, playground, and athletic fields.
- Resulting expansion allows for increased enrollment, expanded programs, better learning environments, enhanced technologies, and a safer, more inviting school community.
Given the enormous amount of money we had to raise, we needed somebody who actually had done something like this before... Dickerson-Bakker was fabulous in giving us the road map we needed to help us succeed.
If any of my colleagues are looking for a recommendation related to a consulting firm to hire to help with their campaign, I can wholeheartedly recommend Dickerson, Bakker & Associates!
