Help For A Newbie Charity Campaign Coordinator?

I may be asked to administer a local basic services campaign here in town next month, and need the help of the hive mind.

I need to hear from community organizers, project coordinators, non-profit directors, etc. about how to minimize mistakes and streamline an already-successful project.

What advice can you give me about marketing, planning, volunteer organization, and strategy to make the most of a campaign?

What problems would you like to help someone avoid if given a chance?

I want to hit the ground running with this and build on its progress.

Feel free to memail me for further details, questions, etc.

And thank you!

Wow, deafening silence. I think we might need some more specifics from you - the information you're asking for could and does fill an entire master's program.

Yeah, I was a wee vague here. The link to the campaign is here:

I'm hoping that the hive mind can give me at least some advice on lessons learned, etc. so I don't make bad mistakes or waste my time with unnecessary stuff.

(I'm being vague, again, aren't I?)

Whatever advice is welcome. This is a big ask and I want to do it right.
