The Power of Asking for Help

The Intentional Fundraiser Podcast

Nov 9 2022 • 47 mins

In this episode of The Intentional Fundraiser podcast, I’m delighted to be talking with a woman I have admired for a very long time, Andrea Kihlstedt.

Quite literally Andrea wrote THE book on capital campaigns. She’s the author of Capital Campaigns: Strategies that Work, now in its 4th edition. She’s been leading successful capital campaigns for more than 30 years.

She’s also the author of How to Raise $1 Million (or More) in 10 Bite-Sized Steps, and several other great books about fundraising and board development.

Andrea co-founded Capital Campaign Masters and the Capital Campaign Toolkit, along with Amy Eisenstein. I’m very proud to have recently joined Capital Campaign Toolkit as an Advisor, in addition to the portfolio of work I do through my company, Fundraising Transformed.

I could go on and on about this incredible woman…but I want you to hear from her! Take a listen.
