Are you taking the right steps, allocating the appropriate resources and using the most effective strategies to get the best results from your major gift program? Learn how to identify the right prospects and get the visit, how to build relationships with integrity and how to make an ask that leads to a “yes.” This full-day, interactive session will help you build confidence in your approach to major gift fundraising.

Participants will explore:

  • The six steps to major gifts
  • Overcoming the roadblocks to success
  • Building your case
  • Developing specific strategies
  • Handling objections
  • The arc of the ask
  • Moving donors up the giving ladder
