Coastal Georgia Historical Society: Capital Campaigns

Hargrove International was engaged by the Coastal Georgia Historical Society (CGHS) to provide strategy and preliminary planning for that organization’s successful campaign to raise $4 million to convert an historic Coast Guard Station into a new state-of-the-art World War II Homefront Museum focusing on the region’s significant contributions to the war effort. Hargrove International helped CGHS determine the campaign goal, define the organizational structure, recruit key volunteer leadership, structure a detailed implementation timetable, identify lead gifts, and establish an implementation timetable. Hargrove International also provided training for staff and volunteer leadership using its signature “Art of the Ask” approach, that CGHS credits for much of its success.
