Campaign for Carolina Committee

On October 6, 2017, Carolina launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign to date - For All Kind: the Campaign for Carolina. SILS is a case study for how comprehensive fundraising campaigns help stakeholders focus resources, build momentum, and increase results. SILS benefits from an active Campaign Committee, which inspires and leads our efforts.
