Friday, September 15, 2017

9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The time you invest in raising major gifts has been shown to have a better return than any other type of fundraising. As an effective professional, are you taking the right steps, allocating the appropriate resources and using the most effective strategies to get the best results from your major gift program? Learn how to identify the right major gift prospects and get in the door, how to handle the visit and build relationships with integrity and how to make the ask that leads to a “yes.” This full-day, interactive course will help you build comfort and confidence in your approach to major gift fundraising.

This course is designed for fundraisers with at least 1 to 2 years of experience with some current responsibility for major gifts. Class size limited to 25.

Participants will explore:

  • How much research is enough
  • Preparing for the visit
  • Getting to know your donor
  • Balancing task and relationship
  • Why contact reports matter
  • When the last ask isn’t the last ask – managing the gift spiral
