Campaign Planning in Verse

National Limerick Day, May 12, 2022

And now for a word from Ostara
To our clients both near and afar-a
Who are taking the reigns
And planning campaigns,
We offer this brief Magna Carta:
(Article I: Leadership)
Your leadership must be prepared,
Committees shall duly be chaired,
All will give in good measure
Their time and their treasure
And networks be happily shared.
(Article II: Community)
Begin with your deepest investors
And community messaging testers
To ensure there’s potential
And those influential
To be your best friends and connectors
(Article III: Core Assets)
Neglect not your staff and your culture
Your fundraising infrastructure
Your plans and your mission
Your values and vision
All under a skillful conductor
If you’re wondering “what’s our potential?”
“Do we have everything that’s essential?”
Our team’s seen it all
And we’d welcome your call
To discuss our approach and credentials.
