guyettebecca1-1Capital needs for a small organization can seem overwhelming and unattainable. Rebecca Guyette, Director of Leadership Giving for United Way of Champaign County, will lead us through the fundamentals of a successful capital campaign. Learn how to go step-by-step to assess need, build capacity, recruit and develop leadership and secure funds. Join AFPECI for a brown bag lunch program as Rebecca shares her experience of leading a successful capital campaign in our local market. We’ll all learn how to make our organization’s capital dreams a reality!

Rebecca Guyette, Certified Fund Raising Executive, has over 10 years of direct fundraising experience in this community. She spent 10 years with the University of Illinois YMCA, organizing and implementing a capital funds drive to renovate their 70-year old building, and has been with United Way since 2013. There she is responsible for the 30-year old Pillar program, consisting of 1500 supporters giving $500 or more annually to United Way. Becca serves on the boards for Girls on the Run of Champaign County and East Central Illinois Association of Fundraising Professionals and several other community organizations.
