How would you like to raise twice as much money for your organization? How about three, four, or five times as much as you raise today?

If you said “yes!” then this is the session for you.


We’ll discuss what it takes to build powerful Major Gift and Planned Giving Programs and you’ll walk away with proven strategies, techniques, and tools for your organization. You’ll learn:

  1.  How to identify major donor and planned giving prospects
  2. How to communicate with these donors
  3. How to cultivate and build strong donor relationships
  4. How to make the ask

By focusing more on Major Gifts and Planned Giving – not special events, or grants, or corporate giving – you will raise significantly more money, ensure continued fundraising success long into the future, and allow your organization to have the greatest impact.
