IHE Grant Series: Grants and Capital Campaigns at IHEs
Session 5 of the IHE Starting an Office of Sponsored Research Series 

It is typical for colleges and universities to use multi-year comprehensive capital campaigns as major fundraising initiatives. Grants for bricks and mortar projects, program development, and capacity-building initiatives can and should contribute to the IHE’s comprehensive capital campaign to meet overall fundraising and revenue goals. Participants will learn how to leverage the expertise of the grant professional as a valuable member of the capital campaign team and will be equipped with a plan for setting relevant revenue goals. Grant revenue tracking templates will be provided as a take-away resource.
