Goal: $100 million
Services: Planning Study, Case for Support, Internal Readiness Assessment, Major Gifts, Training and Coaching

In Autumn 2014, Graham-Pelton embarked on a Planning Study for the American University in Cairo to test a $100 million target. AUC had successfully fundraised in the past, building a new campus and engaging a large group of supporters.

Graham-Pelton supported AUC in developing the case for support, testing internal readiness, and speaking to existing and potential supporters to discuss the proposed campaign and test both the case and the target.

Following the completion of the study, AUC engaged Graham-Pelton to implement the immediate next steps, which included major gift training, a fundraising workshop, and exploring new prospect opportunities through research training.
