35 N O N P R O F I T E S S E N T I A L S : R e c r u i t i n g a n d Tr a i n i n g IN THE REAL WORLD Recruiting Campaign Leadership A group of volunteer firefighters who had never run a capital campaign found themselves in need of making major renovations to their fire training school. Although the Board was fairly large (33 members) and committed to the organization, they were not people of affluence or influence in their community. Recognizing the need to involve some key community players, they (along with their consultant) developed a plan to approach the CEO of the largest business in their community and ask him to serve as the Honorary Chair of the campaign, believing he would not have the time to attend meetings and get heavily involved in the campaign solicitations.
Contacts with major donors. Ability to work as part of a team. important position, but could just as easily be a down-to-earth millionaire next door, the person who wears an off-the-rack suit, drives a beat-up old station wagon, and runs an unglamorous business such as pest control or paving. True people of integrity are able to relate with the CEO as well as the janitor of any company—and either one could be a major donor for an organization. Volunteers perform better when they really care about the mission of an organization, but it is critical that fundraising volunteers have this fire in the belly.
Keep in mind that the chair will need visionary leadership abilities, have the ability to make a significant gift to the campaign, and be capable of inspiring and motivating other volunteers. Sometimes an Honorary Chair is appointed, particularly when organizations feel the need to add credibility to their campaigns by involving a high-profile person who may not have the time or energy to devote to serving in an active role on the Campaign Cabinet, but whose standing in the community would enhance the public image of the organization and the campaigns.
