Individual donors are the lifeblood for a not-for-profit, so cultivating new donor prospects and stewarding existing ones should be at the top of your fundraising agenda, whatever size your budget is. In this course we will provide the tips & tools for successfully solicitting "Major Gifts", large donations from High Net Worth Individuals. And we will show you how to turn major donors into long-term donors by welcoming them into your legacy giving program.

Highlights Include:

  • How to find gold in your existing donor database: Prospecting high net worth individuals
  • Identifying prospects for planned giving and a Legacy Giving Society
  • Setting the stage for the “ask": creating and personalizing "touchpoints" for donor cultivation
  • Engaging millennial and younger donors and their extended network of friends and family through peer-to-peer events and other more interactive fundraising activites

This 75 minute seminar includes a Q&A and discussion of strategic problem solving and Development How To’s.
