Aespire has helped Ohio's fastest-growing community college develop a major gifts campaign with the goal of transforming the region by enhancing educational opportunities.
Client: Lorain County Community College
The Transformations Campaign aligns fundraising objectives with the Education, Economic, Community and Cultural cornerstones of its mission.
The results: With a $15 million dollar goal; over time the campaign has exceeded expectations.
After 45 years, Lorain County Community College is widely recognized as a leader in educational and economic development issues, firmly believing that the two objectives work together.
Based on the case statement for the campaign, the communications solution became apparent: a modular communications kit that allowed development staff to tailor the presentation by aligning the donor's interests with the objectives of the campaign.
The most effective way to communicate the campaign was to introduce the story in a personal manner, from the perspective of the highly respected president and vice president of the community college.
