Are You Ready to Solicit Major Gifts? …

Are You Ready to Solicit Major Gifts?

Major gifts can fund important programs and solidify your financial base. In fact, major gifts should be an important part of your overall fundraising strategy. Do you have the right processes in place to be successful?

Perhaps you are just beginning with major gift asks, or the idea of major gifts is overwhelming. The good news is the return on your investment of time and energy is much higher in major gifts than special events and mailings. The even better news is that summer is a great time to step out of the office and spend one hour to learn the important steps for major gifts fundraising and how it fits into your overall development plan.
