Extreme Engagement Leads to Leadership Annual, Major, Planned and Mega Gifts

We know from research that the more two-way, meaningful and productive donor engagement is the more people give time, expertise, contacts, and money. We also know that we must engage all the decision-makers. Now, new research is out that says more potential donors want to be part of “group” engagement. Whew. How does a small non-for-profit develop a sustainable suite of opportunities? How does a complex institution with gift officers spread across multiple sites do it? Together we’ll help you turn theory into practice and your involved donors into “extremely engaged.” We’ll explore creative and innovative ways to engage your donors on and off line. The results will be “More Leadership Annual, Major, Planned and Mega Gifts!”

Session 1 applied for 2 hours CFRE Credit

Double Your Donors in Two Years

Building a major gift program from the ground up can be a daunting task. How will you get your current donors to give at major gift levels? How will you find enough new donors to invest in your dreams? In this fast-paced, practical session, we will develop a two-year plan to double the number of donors giving to your organization! You will walk away with concrete action steps and lots of motivation.
