Special Program: Launching or Strengthening a Major Gifts Program: What to Consider

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 10:00 am - 12:00 pm 
In-person | New York, NY

Check-in: 9:30 am

A major gifts effort can provide one of the highest returns on investment in your development program. Are you looking to strengthen your major gifts program, or start one from scratch?  There are four key areas to consider before embarking on a new or improved major gifts effort: case for support, leadership, prospects and donors, and systems. This session will help you:

  • Assess if your case for support is compelling to major gift donors
  • Understand the role of volunteer and staff leadership in major gifts
  • Evaluate your current and prospective donor base for major gift prospects
  • Establish the right systems and processes needed to support a successful major gifts effort
