Conducting a campaign feasibility study can help you answer many questions for your organization.
Are our goals and case statement clearly articulated for our prospective donors and board?
“David Hyslop provided important guidance to the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra as we considered the feasibility of an $8 million Endowment and Recapitalization Campaign. His wisdom and years of experience were extremely valuable to us in this process, and he continues to be a most helpful resource in our fundraising efforts.”

~Paul Helfrich, Executive Director
West Virginia Symphony Orchestra

“David Hyslop of Hyslop & Associates was of immense help to us in our recent feasibility study for the remodeling of the Wheaton Grand Theater. His knowledge and experience in managing auditoriums, booking attractions, being aware of suburban arts trends, and the importance of a strong season ticket base  was of great help to us in establishing our case for support. We look forward to working with him in the future.”

~Ray Shepardson, Project Manager
Wheaton Grand Theatre Restoration Project

“David provided strategic counsel to the Omaha Symphony regarding the feasibility of commencing with an endowment campaign. He has an exceptional ability to engage with board leadership and patrons of significant means, quickly establishing a rapport with them that enables him to efficiently and effectively glean from them the information required for his assignment. His affable manner, knowledge of the orchestra industry, and positive disposition all contributed to a superb working relationship with both senior management and the board of directors. Without hesitation I would recommend him to orchestras requiring a knowledgeable expert with great strategic perspective.”

~Rob Hallam, President & CEO
