Major gifts are the least expensive way to fundraise — and one of the most fulfilling for donors. Major-gift development is about building relationships, involving prospects and donors in your organization, and collaborating to find solutions to pressing issues. This four-part workshop guides participants through:
- Determining what constitutes a major gift at your organization
- Identifying and qualifying major gift prospects
- Soliciting a major gift
- Stewarding major gift donors
- Building the donor pipeline
- Measuring success
Whether you’re an emerging fundraiser with some responsibility for larger gifts, or an experienced development professional newly tasked with them, finding time and knowing where to start are often the biggest obstacles to raising major gifts. Let Nonprofit Works help you jumpstart your efforts! (Note: This workshop assumes participants have previous experience in direct mail and / or event solicitation.)
