• Capital Campaign Review Board

    The Capital Campaign Review was formed to assist Greater Reading's Non-Profits with their fundraising needs. The purpose of this Board is:

    • To evaluate the purposes, justification, and viability of proposed community appeals for capital funds by local agencies, organizations, and institutions who wish to seek funds beyond their own membership.
    • To provide a service to the community by administering a system that evaluates the community's most critical social and economic needs, approves and schedules appeals for capital funds according to the community needs and ability to support them.
    • To report all recommendations made by the Board to member constituencies and the community at large.

There are various resources available to assist non-profit organizations.
