FUND DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF ACTION
The Treasure Coast Wildlife Hospital is currently developing a comprehensive Fund Development Plan to identify funding needs for the immediate relocation of the facility to its new home in Palm City as well as long-term fundraising goals for the Community Wildlife Center.
A combined campaign strategy is being used to raise funds for the capital campaign, support of operations, support of programs, and building an endowment. A consultant has been hired to assist us in creating our fund development plan, strengthening our organizational structure, and improving our marketing materials and communications efforts with the general public to further engage them in supporting the Treasure Coast Wildlife Hospital’s plan for the Community Wildlife Center.
Our Capital Campaign goal is to raise approximately $2.32 million during the next three to five years. The Table of Gifts below shows the number and size of gifts needed to reach this goal.
A Capital Campaign Cabinet is being developed to provide the campaign with the necessary leadership to effectively move the process forward. A market survey is currently being administered to provide additional insights into the campaign goals, objectives and strategy.
The Wildlife Hospital
will conduct its first annual campaign as part of the overall capital
campaign. The goal is to raise funds to offset the costs of moving
the Hospital to the new Palm City site and to support increased operational
expenses during this transition period.
We will also embark on a long term Endowment Campaign to raise an additional $5 million during the next five to ten years. This will ensure the sustainability of the Wildlife Center as we anticipate the growing general operating and programming costs required to effectively meet our goals and objectives. Planned giving instruments and bequests will be the cornerstone of the endowment fund.
Several public education events are already sponsored by the Wildlife Hospital including it’s annual Open House (in March), the “Woodstork” April music festival, and “Octobernest” in the fall.
New special events will occur at the Palm City site and through other venues to raise awareness about the immediate crisis for the Wildlife Hospital and to educate supporters about the long-term plans for the Wildlife Center.
The Wildlife Hospital will reach out to the entire Treasure Coast Community and beyond for financial as well as leadership support to ensure a successful capital campaign. Contact — in a variety of forms — will be made with current and former Treasure Coast Wildlife Hospital members and major donors as well as local businesses, private and corporate foundations, government, civic groups and clubs, and the public at large.
Your help will be invaluable to the success of this project. Please consider joining with us in whatever manner you may be comfortable in providing. If you have the financial ability, please consider leaving a legacy to this community through a major gift. Our Commemorative Naming Opportunities allow for the enduring recognition of someone who holds wild creatures and the natural environment most dear. Legacy gifts in the name of children and grandchildren are also an excellent demonstration to coming generations that a sense of community comes from within, not from without.
